Joseph Michael Lopez Gus Powell

Join Leica Akademie with Joseph Michael Lopez and Gus Powell to experience the wonders of street photography in New York City from April 6-8. In this three day workshop, two uniquely expressive and poetic practitioners of contemporary street photography will come together to agree and disagree about “taking” and “making” pictures, “hunting” and “gathering”, visual communication and poetic storytelling, and other topics to emphasize both shooting and editing. 

This contrasting combination of instructors provides the rare opportunity to observe and learn from two very distinct photographers. Participants will be able to benefit from different approaches to making images, while at the same time, exploring and receiving feedback on ways to work in public spaces.  The workshop will begin with an initial presentation on Friday, followed by site specific work and shooting at diverse locations around the city on Saturday, and concluding on Sunday with a morning of shooting and an afternoon of critique
