Marking the Mois de la Photo and Paris Photo and celebrating the Garry Winogrand exhibition at the Jeu de Paume, the Mona Bismarck American Center has organized a series of three street photography workshops led by Meredith Mullins.
Students will meet at the Mona Bismarck American Center before going out into the neighborhood to practice new techniques to capture personalities and prepare for the “decisive moment.” Each workshop includes a discussion of participants’ images after returning from “the field,” as well as an exploration of the work of great humanist/street photographers, including Garry Winogrand, Robert Frank, Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Willy Ronis, Mary Ellen Mark, Martin Parr, Daido Moriyama and André Kertesz.
The three Saturday workshops focus on techniques, essential photographer traits and ways of really “seeing” the world—all the tools needed to become a creative, curious and insightful street photographer. Each workshop is designed to stand alone but, as a series of three, they will provide a complete overview of the art of capturing unfolding street stories.
Meredith Mullins is an internationally exhibited American photographer currently living in Paris. With a background in television, film and communications, she has been a fine art photographer for over 40 years. Her work is presented in books and journals and exhibitions have been held in museums and private collections throughout North America and Europe, including the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.
Meredith Mullins’ images of Paris center around life on the streets including the life of Saturday nights and Sunday mornings.
