Street photography is usually a demanding yet rewarding immersive experience that requires observation, fast reaction, creativity, and sensitivity to various human situations. These days the streets are almost deserted as we join forces in battling the pandemic and have to base a large part of our interaction with the world through one screen or another. This situation is tough yet also offers an opportunity to explore and expand our creativity. In this workshop we will examine how to harness online resources as Google Street View, Google Earth, or Periscope to create a powerful and interesting series of images. The work of leading international artists will be presented and discussed inspiring students to create their own series.

Workshop outcomes:

Familiarize yourself with online imagery environments

Learn about leading bodies of work of online street photography

Get inspired to create pictures from the comfort of your chair

Meet like-minded people who share your passion for photography
