Classic Street Photography: What the Masters Can Teach Us

Speaker: Leo Howard Lubow

What makes a great street photograph? In this (updated) class, Leo explores this question as we view and deconstruct the work of several street masters, including Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Weegee, Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand, Bruce Gilden, Diane Arbus, Vivian Maier, Fan Ho, Alex Webb, William Albert Allard, Saul Leiter, and Ernst Haas, together with a number of more contemporary photographers. Along the way, we also consider whether all great street photographers have at least one element in common: an underlying vision or personal philosophy that drives their work and creates their signature.
