The web has spurred a revival of street photography, and now there’s a site devoted to students of this exciting and challenging approach to candid photography.
Friend of In-Public Mason Resnick has launched a new website, The World at Street Level, which promotes street photography by showing student work, and providing resources for aspiring street photographers.
The site is dedicated to the work of students of the Perfect Picture School of Photography online course, Street Photography: Finding Order in Chaos. It’s now showing photos by students who’ve completed the first session of the course.
The World at Street Level offers galleries featuring students who have completed Resnick’s street photography course, as well as information about street photography, and testimonials from students who have taken the course.
Mike Mackay of Lichfield, UK, says the class “has ignited in me a passion for photography that I’m finding difficult to contain. A great course!” Meanwhile, Gary Budke of San Fransisco, CA, says that the class “has opened my eyes to a whole new type of photography.”
The four-week course in street photography begins on April 25. Registration is now open here.
In-Public was set up in 2000 to provide a home for Street Photographers.
Our aim is to promote Street Photography and to continue to explore its possibilities, we are a non commercial collective. All the photographers featured here have been invited to show their work because they have the ability to see the unusual in the everyday and to capture the moment. The pictures remind us that, if we let it, over-familiarity can make us blind to what’s really going on in the world around us.Read more
