In his lecture, Harvey Stein shares aspects of a career that spans more than 40 years of consistent and impressive work in photography. He shows and discusses work from his newest book, Harlem Street Portraits,  published last October. In addition, he shows some images from his four other books, Parallels: A Look At Twins (1978), Artists Observed  (1986), Coney Island (1998), Movimento: Glimpses of Italian Street Life (2006), and Coney Island 40 Years. Stein also discusses ways of approaching publishers, and strategies for getting long-term projects into book form. Stein is well known for his strong, close-up and involving street photography, as well as his sensitive portraits of people from around the world. For him, photography is a way to learn about life, living, and self. “Mostly, I do long-term projects that are of personal interest. I photograph situations, people and places I don’t know and need to learn about. Photography is the most meaningful thing I could ever do. It is my way of saying, ‘I am here,’ and my way of sharing some of my life and understanding of the world with others.”

Imagine yourself a wonderful new world, one so tiny, it is barely visible to the naked eye: A world of magical landscapes, colors and shapes, populated by strange, fascinating creatures, just like in a science-fiction or a fantasy movie. Now imagine that not only this world is not fictional, Hollywoodish, or Photoshopped, it also fits in the palm of your hands, hiding right under your feet, anywhere, and in reach- from the backyard through the parks, fields, and even inside your homes. Nadav Bagim has created a magical wonderland of giant toadstools, pastel skies and brightly-colored flora in which insects and other critters roam.  The Wonderland series presents a remarkable creativity and originality and by using a unique but rather simple and elegant artificial lighting and household objects, from vegetables to plastic bags, Nadav was able to capture all those photos in camera without digital manipulation. In a miniature studio on his kitchen table, he captured praying mantises on mars, romantic snails kissing on a coconut hill, and lots of other surreal scenes. The series has been published in numerous magazines and websites all around the world.  In his presentation, 'A small new world', Nadav will open a hatch to this fascinating world, and will share with you how to create and document this hidden paradise using creativity and a lot of love for the little ones.  Nadav Bagim Nadav Bagim (a.k.a AimishBoy) is not going to write about himself in a third-person style as you would expect from these "about" sections. He will not present himself as a 33 year old who started as a Neuroscience student until he discovered that his real passion lay in the photography world. He will not mention that he is self-taught, because everybody is nowadays, and will not describe how he specializes in macro photography but also enjoys shooting many more objects and subjects that pop into his head- that you will be able to see for yourself in his galleries, lectures and workshops. However, the one thing Nadav is willing to write is a big  Thank You, for taking the time to visit his site and view his photos. He surely hopes you will enjoy them. www.AimishBoy.com

If you are lucky enough (and talented enough) to have a long career in photography, over time your work takes you down many roads, and Mel DiGiacomo is one of those photographers. Whether he is shooting the US Open or a wedding, on assignment for top magazines, or doing self-assignments on the street in New York City or in his small town in New Jersey, DiGiacomo is one hard-working photographer whose ability to adapt to a wide variety of situations and come back with the pictures holds lessons for any aspiring photographer. Photographers are always looking for subjects, and in so doing, often choose the street. As Dorothy Norman said, "You don’t have to go fifty feet from your house to find a photograph." And DiGiacomo is a great example of this. He is as adept at photographing the sports of the children in his town as he is shooting the action at a professional sporting event, or on the streets in NYC or at a wedding. While street photography can be accomplished on any street, New York City in particular is a place that lends itself to the art (after all, our sidewalks are 18% gray!). But street shooting does require a certain discipline. In this class, photographer Mel DiGiacomo discusses how to know the light, how to learn the vocabulary of your lenses, and how to put aside the technical aspects and keep thinking to a minimum to keep your shooting instinctual. DiGiacomo looks for human behavior, whether on the street, in a classrom, or at a wedding, and follows the advice of Walker Evans: "Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You’re not here long." DiGiacomo will get you thinking in different ways to help stretch your photographic muscles.
