The Center for Documentary Studies is pleased to welcome back acclaimed documentary photographer Harvey Stein, who will again teach his popular Documentary Street Photography workshop, September 23–25, 2016. The class, offered through our Continuing Education program, will consist of lectures, demonstrations, slide presentations, critiques, and photographic field trips. Topics will include photographing strangers, strategies of approach and interaction, methods of controlling light and exposure, and the best lenses and cameras for street shooting. Students will be encouraged “to participate in the drama of the ordinary,” the longtime International Center of Photography instructor says.
