In late August 2017 The Street Collective was invited to London, to present their edit "Summer in the city" during the 1st edition of London Street Photography Festival (LSPF) at "Stour Space" in Hackney Wick, to instruct workshops and participate as jurors in the various contests.
There will be a 3-day-street-photography-workshop, conducted by TSC-members Forrest Walker and Dmitry Stepanenko, in Budapest end of September 2017. The workshop will include a mixture of daily photo walks, photo critiques, portfolio reviews and interactive lectures. This is an intensive workshop with multiple instructors fully involved each step of the way to make sure you get the most out of your time. There will also be an emphasis on helping you fully immerse yourself in the city through street photography, so you can learn, while also having a great time experiencing Budapest.
Under the umbrella of The Street Collective, Forrest Walker and Dmitry Stepanenko will offer a 3-days-street-photography-workshop in London in March 2017.
The workshop's focus is on colour and it's role in modern street photography. The workshop will start with the portfolio reviews of student's best work followed by an interactive lecture on colour photography. The participants will be shown examples of different types of colour street photographs with an emphasis on various artistic approaches used to create visually pleasing and compositionally strong images. Students are expected to take an active part in several activities aimed at enhancing their vision and broadening the artistic experiences. The workshop will finish with students getting the constructive feedback and critique by the mentors on the photographs taken during the workshop.
WHERE: London, UK.
WHEN: 10-12 March 2017
PRICE: 400 GBP for a 3 days workshop

"The American street is the heart of the Western civilization - the civilization of consumption. The individual is swallowed by an inflation of images, full of colors and symbols. (...) Pop-art has turned the banal into art, but the street takes art and returns it into the banal."
