Street Photo Club LX | First Session
Lisbon is such a perfect place for street photography—full of colors, historical buildings, modern architecture and graffitis. But why should we stay only behind the camera?
Let’s build a community of like-minded street photographers. Gather. Drink. Share photos and tips. What are your funny stories or bad experiences? Do you have a nice portfolio or Insta page? Present your beautiful work. Meet other interesting, creative—perhaps a bit crazy—people!
Join us for our first meeting at Curious Monkey. We will welcome two amazing photographers who will share their work and give brief talks:
Manu Sánchez (@talpoq) is from Spain who shot a photo story called “The Finder” in Bosnia among the ruins of the Balkan War. He recently had his successful photo exhibition at Arte Graça, and one of photos went to the wall at Panteão Nacional.
And then, Reuben Ross, a visual anthropologist whose work explores diverse issues of urban and visual culture, transnational migraition and the challenges of living in a global capitalist economy whose recent work appeared in exhibits in Los Angeles and Tallinn and various print/online magazines.
After, we will discuss some photography tips from street photographer Eric Kim. We can nerd out on technical stuff and focal lengths. If there is time, we might fit in a live photo editing session on our projector in Lightroom.
The goal of this evening is to begin to create a community. We will create a WhatsApp group to go to the streets to shoot together and then share our shots at our next meeting.
Free entrance. Limited to 15 people. Covid rules apply.
19:00 – 20:30 but feel free to stay later
