April 20, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$450.00 – $500.00
Sign saying Beauty Way

What is “street photography”, what makes for a compelling “street” image, and how can we begin to define our own look and approach working in the street?  This course begins seeking to answer these questions by examining historical images, the photographers who made them, and the intellectual, cultural, and technical influences that affected the image-makers. These questions will continue to guide our investigation in the classroom and as we explore the streets in Winchester, Boston, and surrounding areas. Assignments are designed to stretch your vision, help you to design quickly within the frame, and push you beyond your comfort zone. Discussion, open inquiry, and thoughtful critique are essential tools to growth in this course.

Instructor Bio:

Bill Franson

Bill Franson is a New England based Fine Art/Documentary Photographer, an Adjunct Professor at Gordon College, and a former instructor at the New England School of Photography. Bill has exhibited extensively on the national stage, locally at Gallery Kayafas, Panopticon Gallery, the Griffin Museum, and has been selected three times to exhibit in the Danforth Museum’s New England Photography Biennial. His work is held in both institutional and private collections.

Though often recognized for his quick-witted “street style” photographs, Bill works in multiple formats, depending on the circumstances and intended look of the final image. It has been noted more than once that Bill’s work has the feel of an American archeological project (as every photograph is from the past) as well as a discovery of the just now, putting a split-second frame around a moment, and saying “Look”.

Current projects include: “Mason-Dixon”, “Alexia’s Lament”, “Iron Things”, and “Appleton Farms: A New England Landscape in Four Seasons”. See more of Bill’s work at www.billfranson.net
