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 seminar we’ll explore these questions and others as we view and deconstruct the work and general approach of a variety of street masters, including Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Elliot Erwitt, Diane Arbus, Sebastião Salgado, Garry Winogrand, Steve McCurry, Joel Meyerowitz, 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 photographers have at least one element in common:  an underlying vision or personal philosophy of the world.

Skill level: beginners and advanced
