Wednesdays, 6:30 - 8:30 PM ET

What makes a great street photograph?  What techniques, equipment, compositional elements and psychology help elevate street shooting to a fine art?  In this projector-driven course we’ll explore these questions and others as we view and deconstruct the work and general approach of Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Robert Doisneau, Robert Frank, William Albert Allard, Ernst Haas, Alex Webb, Fan Ho, Elliot Erwitt, Diane Arbus, Wegee, Sebastião Salgado, Martin Parr, Bruce Gilden, Garry Winogrand, Saul Leiter,  Steve McCurry, Joel Meyerowitz, Josef Koudelka, Vivian Maier, and a host of others whose work we promise you’ve never seen.  Along the way, we’ll also consider whether all great street photographs have at least one element in common: an underlying vision or personal philosophy of the world.  In the latter part of the course students will be encouraged but not required to show their own work.  Skill level: beginners and advanced.
