Joel Meyerowitz - New York City, 1975

Our next assignment will be focused on street photography.

You will need to take A LOT of photographs over the next few weeks. Try shooting in many different locations. You can then narrow your images down to your best shots, which you will share with the class. You may work with both digital and/or film. Presentations of your work for this assignment will start just after February break on 2/17. Presentations should include around 15-20 of your selected images and 5-10 images of your chosen photographer(s).

In conjunction with your studio work for this assignment, you will need to research related photographers and complete assigned readings. This work can be done digitally (in google docs and/or the wiki) but should also be included on at least 2 research pages in your photo notebook.
