Leica Street Photography Weekend with Gus Powell and Joseph Michael Lopez in NEW YORK

These two uniquely expressive and poetic practitioners of contemporary street photography will come together for a second time to agree and disagree about “taking” and “making” pictures, “hunting” and “gathering”, visual communication and poetic storytelling, and other topics as they conduct a three day workshop that will emphasize both shooting and editing.

This contrasting combination of instructors provides the rare opportunity to observe and learn from two very distinct photographers. Participants will be able to benefit from different approaches to making images, while at the same time, exploring and receiving feedback on ways to work in public spaces.  The workshop will begin with an initial presentation on Friday, followed by site specific work and shooting at diverse locations around the city on Saturday, and concluding on Sunday with a morning of shooting and an afternoon of critique.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY - A Workshop with Gus Powell in San Francisco

  • Leica Store & Gallery SF (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In this Leica Akademie sponsored workshop, Gus Powell will explore the narrative and poetic potential of photography and the photobook. He will discuss making images that come out of a tradition of street photography, that are then used to make work and books that embrace both the universal and the ambiguous in equal measure.

The workshop will begin with a presentation of Powell’s work: the inspiration and creation of the projects, the books and their maquettes, his work for editorial and commercial clients, and his ongoing practice as a street photographer. It will continue with portfolio reviews and exercises shooting in the street. The weekend will conclude with classroom editing exercises involving collaboration and the union of text, image, and design.

Finding inspiration in unexpected histories and heroes, bringing out humor that lies at the bottom of the human experience, using language to elevate rather than explain an image, and getting into trouble: these are the virtues that Powell will examine both in the classroom and out on the street.

Limited to 12 Students.

One Day of Street Photography with Gus Powell in Los Angeles

In conjunction with Los Angeles Center of Photography's STREET WEEK, Gus Powell will do a lecture and 1 day workshop.  This workshop will explore the many practices that can live under the umbrella of “street photography” with an emphasis on both the physicality and intentionality of the work. We will discuss “taking” and “making” pictures; hunting and gathering, visual communication, poetic storytelling, and other themes as we move from making singular strong images towards creating a body of work.

Beginning with a overview of each students history and a critique of their current work, the workshop will then push forward to working on the street; and conclude with a focus on editing and sequencing to communicate a specific point of view.
