What you'll learn in this photography class:

Street Photography in the 21s Century: New Voices, New Strategies

The great heyday of “social documentary” street photography, which blossomed after the Second World War and lasted into the 1980’s, gave us many of the century’s greatest pictures, produced by several of our greatest photographers: Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, William Klein. Their prodigious work has provided lessons for two or three generations of students, in courses and workshops like this one. But they may have overstayed their welcome at this party; the conversation has grown a little stale. In the 21st century, we need to invite other voices and ideas into the discussion…

Unlike those celebrated forbears, most of us use digital cameras now, which mostly capture color images in high definition; we can crank the ISO to shoot in the near dark, where our lenses will focus automatically. Those cameras can be gotten for a bargain, and many of us already have laptops we can process our files on: People who could never have participated in the photo culture, for want of lenses or film or a darkroom, can now make and share their work with relative ease. New ideas are oozing in from the edges, and attitudes about content, design and presentation are emerging; we’re reevaluating “the author” and their prerogatives.

In this workshop we’ll look at the work of photographers who’ve come of age in the aftermath of street photography’s golden age––after we thought the genre had exhausted itself. What do those photographers have to teach us about what’s possible now? How does digital capture create possibilities that Robert Frank could never have dreamt of? How do current ideas about power, gender, and privilege affect the way we make and read street photography? Does street photography even require streets, or people?

We’ll meet four times for lectures, discussions and critiques. We’ll take three field trips to various Los Angeles neighborhoods, to make pictures. (Times and locations TBD.)
