Jeff Mermelstein

August 26-28


The workshop would be modeled by Jeff’s street photography class that he has taught at the International Center of Photography in NY for many years.
The workshop would be a combination of exposure to street photography that had a big impact on Jeff and a practical sessions. Jeff will show online projections of photographs and some videos.
Assignments will be given and critiqued as well as that of existing work.
Here is a bit more info from Jeff himself:
“My street photography workshop will be a condensed exploration of what street photography is and can be. There will be an in depth introduction to a wide range of work of both historical and contemporary figures working in this genre.

Through daily photographic assignments, presentations and critiques, readings, and discussion, participants will produce pictures that reflect a personal point of view and understanding of street photography.


The best and most memorable street photographers offer a clear vision of the world from a personal perspective. This workshop will view and discuss the work of many street photographers including Henri Cartier Bresson, Kertesz, Lisette Model, Roy DeCarava, Leon Levinstein, Louis Faurer, Walker Evans, Helen Levitt, William Klein, Robert Frank,  Garry Winoigrand, Lee Friedlander, William Eggleston, Daido Moriyama, Diane Arbus and Weegee. Some current figures and from the more recent past will include Paul Graham, Philip Lorca Dicorcia, Henrey Wessel, Mark Cohen, Katy Grannan, Lise Sarfati, Bruce Gilden, Anthony Hernandez, Jamell Shabazz, Feng Li, Arnold Daniel and others.


Students will leave this workshop with a heightened awareness of why street photography remains powerfully important today as a means of depicting reality and life.
