Join Jamel Shabazz for a two-day workshop available to photographers of all levels. Shabazz, best known for his iconic photographs of New York City during the 1980s, will teach photographers the necessary skills one must have when photographing on the street. During the first day, participants will view the work of noted street photographers and images created by prominent writers. Participants will then venture onto the streets of Midtown Manhattan, learning various aspects of street photography. On the second day, participants will review each other’s work and have a discussion about the experiences and challenges they faced when photographing.

Some of the areas that will be discussed during the workshop are preparation, themes, composition, body language, techniques, and career opportunities.

No prior knowledge is needed. Participants should come with an open mind.
