If you plan to participate at the usual workshop … well ‘ you have just found the wrong site ! The ” Chicago Street Photography ” project was born from the idea to share our Italian way of doing “street ” with Americans like and love the Italian Style : a real Italian learning experience outside the classroom in direct contact with people and urban elements of the American City . Street photography is more than a photographic genre ; Street photography is a way of being , of living and perceiving of the day-life. Our Plus is our Italianism. Be “ Italian street photographer ” means get excited for the simple things , to grasp the “candid” side of life, smiling of the grotesque but also convey , with a sweet brutality , those visions that generate emotion. CSP is a way to “speak” Italian Street Photography in the homeland of Street Photography. Andrea Sciré and Giuseppe Pons are member of the Italian Street Photography ISP, the only Italian Street Project full dedicated to the street photography shoot only in Italy.
The Patronage of the ICC Italian Culture Center of Chicago is the symbol of the will for a real culture exchange between people loving the Italian doing way and Italian Professional Photographers loving the American “dream”.
Five days of Italian Street Photography in one of the most fascinating cities in America accompanied by Andrea Scirè and Giuseppe Pons, two of the most active and well-recognized Italian street photographers. A journey for understanding the techniques of Street Photography and their ever-changing usage. All the magic of the Chicago lights: the sharp cuts of the shadows, crowded neighborhoods and blues nights are just some of Italian Style Experience awaiting you.
We propose a very scary photo shooting on Halloween day! Live Halloween as “Streepher” will be crazy: Oct 31st we will go down in the street at night with flash for a live night session. Illuminated by the lights of the city we are going to enter through narrow streets and parties, we will understand the Night Street Photography techniques and its creative approaches.
You will be always free to move, the HOT SPOT planning will allow to use immediately, in the street, tips and techniques of Street Photography; briefings at the “Hot Spot Point” will be a check and an investigation on the shooting. A learning process based to direct experience and direct application of techniques and approaches.
Who we are:
Andrea Sciré: “Street photography must be done in the street, you have to feel the smell of the asphalt, the people passing close to you!” Street photography means being able to observe, it means learning to predict situations, it means being able to be ready to catch those little decisive moments. Andrea will present the B&W Chicago
Giuseppe Pons: The Street without color is like fish without salt, I don’t like it; It tastes “not good”. The Chicago color is Blue (s)! The blue of the sky clear complement to the yellow of the sun that cuts dramatically the black shadows of the skyscrapers in Chicago … “The colors are action and suffering of light”. Giuseppe is for a fully Colors Chicago
