The streets and tenements of the Lower East Side, as depicted in the iconic photographs of Jacob Riis, Berenice Abbott, and Helen Levitt, have long been home to immigrants from around the world. Today, newcomers push into established ethnic enclaves, and new construction threatens the historic streetscape. In this online blended-learning class, students work in the field together and independently to document different geographical or thematic aspects of the neighborhood. This course is limited to 10 students.

Note: The class will meet in the field for three sessions, and will meet online using Zoom for in-class lecture, critiques and presentations. The instructor will provide the Zoom meeting information to the students. All camera formats welcome.

Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.
