Erica McDonald and I have begun The Intuitive Document workshop in Brooklyn. Nine photographers traveled from Italy to work on the streets and study with us. They have a week to explore NYC with their cameras and bring back a fresh body of work. Our hosts Roberto and Laura will provide daily updates on the workshop blog. I’ll do my best to show some photos and give brief updates. This Saturday we’ll celebrate the students’ work with a festive slideshow and maybe a few beers.
We’re going to encourage the students to stretch and break their comfort zones, and photograph with newfound intensity. We encountered Angelica as she whirled with her hula hoop in a park off Broadway near the JMZ. Angelica showed no self-consciousness, just the confidence to be comfortable among a group of strangers with cameras fascinated by her ability.
Catching this energetic lady in a moment of repose at the end of our meeting, I imagined her offering us good luck as we embark on this wild week of creative adventure. Thank you, Angelica.
