Gus Powell - Orange Smoke Gus Powell - 2 - Flower and girl

Create images from the inspiration you find on the streets of D.C. with photographer Gus Powell and the Leica Akademie USA on May 17 -19, 2019. Gus will discuss making images that come out of
 a tradition of street photography, that are then used to make work and books that 
embrace both the universal and the ambiguous in equal measure.

The workshop will begin with a presentation of Gus Powell’s work: the inspiration and
 creation of the projects, the books and their maquettes, his work for editorial and 
commercial clients, and his ongoing practice as a street photographer. It will
 continue with portfolio reviews and exercises shooting in the street. The weekend will conclude with classroom editing exercises involving collaboration and the union
 of text, image, and design.

Finding inspiration in unexpected histories and heroes, bringing out humor that
 lies at the bottom of the human experience, using language to elevate rather than
 explain an image, and getting into trouble: these are the virtues that Powell will
 examine both in the classroom and out on the street.

Who should attend this program?
This workshop is intended for the intermediate or experienced photographer that 
is interested in street photography and moving towards the creation of a body of
 work. It is expected that participants are already comfortable with proper 
exposure and general camera use. Attendance is limited to 12 maximum.
