Street photography is an improvisation, performed in long hours of wandering alone on foot, guided by the scent of human character and fragility, poetic physical gestures, momentary chance encounters, and quiet interactions that become stopped in time. The resulting pictures may leave unanswerable questions in the viewer’s mind. They can also be a way to help us as photographers to feel more connected to the people and world around us. In this class we'll use a stream-of-consciousness approach to shooting, editing, and sequencing the work. You’ll be encouraged to take a free and fresh look at the images you create on the street, without being burdened by preconceptions of either documentary practices or conceptual mandates of fine art dogmas. Through weekly presentations, assignments, and group editing, we'll make and share new work, with an emphasis on daily practice, and the discoveries we can make about ourselves.
