behind main street
beckoning none the less

On a wonderful warm sunny afternoon in my neighborhood…
On Saturday, I taught my annual photography workshop–a playground for making pictures on the streets, sponsored by the East Side Institute. A group of 15 photographers spent the day together exploring the work of some wonderful photographers, and developing our approach to making photographs. We took to the streets of Chelsea with our iPhones, Androids and DSLR cameras trying some new things in our picture making process.
Here is a selection of photos created during the workshop. It was an energizing day and exciting to see people play with how they make photos, with slowing down and allowing themselves to see in new ways. Many thanks to a wonderful group of photographers, you inspire me.

Here is our next exchange. From Vietnam and England.
