StreetShoTS – Street photography workshop with Nick Turpin
Via Rittmeyer 7/A - Trieste
Saturday 26 October 2019 - Sunday 27 October 2019
Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October 2019 British photographer Nick Turpin, guest of honor at Trieste Photo Days 2019, will hold an exclusive street phootography workshop during the festival.
Founder of the iN-PUBLiC street photographers group, Nick Turpin is considered “one of the best” street photographers (Phil Coomes, writing for BBC News). Not just a street photographer but also a long term commentator and observer of the street photography scene Nick Turpin is well placed to lead you on a journey through your own street photography practice.
Nick will encourage you to explore ‘why’ as well as ‘how’ you make street photographs and force you to see your own work in the wider context of the history and global community of street photography.
Nick will work with you to improve both your practical street photography camera craft as well as your intellectual and creative approach to candid public photography.
It will be a unique and unmissable opportunity to learn from a great artist. The workshop (in english) will take place at Photoscaglia Studio (former Lux Art Gallery – Via De Rittmeyer, 7/A – Trieste) and on the streets of Trieste city center.
