Street Photography


The 2011 exhibition Art in The Streets at The Geffen Contemporary in downtown Los Angeles drew record crowds and confirmed the influence of the urban environment on the way we look and see. Photography has played a vital role in the development of this influence. The tradition of street photography emerged early in the twentieth century with modernist masters Henri Cartier-Bresson and Alfred Stieglitz, and expanded with contributions by Weegee, Robert Frank, and Lee Friedlander, among others. Join Otis Chair Emeritis, Ave Pildas on an exploration of the streets and sites of Southern California. Capture the moment. Discover what, when, where and how to shoot photographs on the street. Learn the etiquette of street photography, the do’s and don’ts of shooting, and your rights as a photographer. Acquaint yourself with equipment and techniques. Course focuses on subject matter, composition, and developing your own personal style. We shoot as a group in historic locations like downtown Los Angeles, Venice Beach and Hollywood Boulevard. In the classroom, we will look at examples of successful street photography and critique the photographs that result from our shoots.
