"Your own photography is never enough. Every photographer who has lasted has depended on other people's pictures too - photographs that may be public or private, serious or funny, but that carry with them a reminder of community."

Robert Adams


CRISOL STREET PHOTOGRAPHY is a purist-approach social photography group based in the center of Madrid. We are bilingual.

• Photo walking - practice - is at the core of what we do: Picking up the camera and using it is #1. We are concerned with improving ourselves as social photographers.

• #2 must be discourse on ethics and practice, and taking in the work of other photographers. To see our errors we must witness how others have solved the problems presented them, and we must reflect. Very likely over drinks.

• And finally at #3 is workshopping. From time to time we'll hold meetings to accept constructive criticism of our best works, our "darlings". This group is a crucible for improvement. 

As the founder of this group, I organize and lead all of the activities free of charge. However, I gratefully accept donations as acts of appreciation for my effort. If you find yourself enjoying the group, please consider donating via my website (Paypal button at the bottom): http://levishand.com/crisol-education-in-social-photography/

Thank you, and I hope you enjoy the group! (image by Marta P)

Addendum: Upload Policy

Each member may upload THREE PHOTOS PER DAY to share with the group. Good advice: choose only your BEST photos to share, and DO NOT share photos that cannot be considered street photography. If a user uploads more than three photos, the extras will be deleted without warning. If the photos are not street photography (humans don't figure as the bearing element in the image), the photo(s) in question will be deleted without warning. We at Crisol take your photos very seriously, and you should too. We try to comment on every single photo that is uploaded, and we cannot continue to do so if too many images are uploaded, or if they fall outside the group's stated genre. Please direct any and all questions to the administrative team. Thanks so much for your cooperation!

CRISOL STREET PHOTOGRAPHY es un grupo de fotografía callejera clásica y pura. Estamos en el centro de la ciudad. Somos bilingües, en la medida de lo posible.

• Los photowalks son nuestra actividad principal. - Sacar nuestra cámara y disparar es #1. Por eso andamos regularmente en las calles de la ciudad.

• El #2  mantener un dialogo entre la teoría y la práctica, observando las obras de otr@s fotógraf@s para ver como ellos han resuelto diferentes situaciones.

• Y #3 es los talleres. Vamos a reunirnos de vez en cuando para recibir criticas de nuestras obras favoritas, de nuestros compañeros.

Como fundador del grupo, organizo y dirijo todas los actividades completamente gratis. Sin embargo, acepto con agradecimiento cualquier donativo que puedes dar. Si disfrutas con el grupo, considera hacer una donación a traves mi sitio de web (a traves del boton de Paypal al final): http://levishand.com/crisol-education-in-social-photography/

Muchas gracias, y espero que disfrutes del grupo! (imagen por Ruben Nieto)

apéndice: politica de subir fotos

Cada miembro podrá subir TRES FOTOS POR DIA para compartir con el resto del grupo. Un buen consejo: escoge tus mejores fotos, y no compartas aquellas fotos que no se consideren fotografía callejera (*Street photography). Si un usuario comparte más de tres fotos, serán borradas aquellas que superen el límite diario. Si las fotos no son de la temática “Street Photography” (las personas no son el elemento vertebrador de la imagen), estas serán borradas sin previo aviso. Nosotros en Crisol tratamos tus fotos con absoluta seriedad. Intentamos comentar cada una de ellas, y no podremos continuar con esta labor si no limitamos el número de fotos que son compartidas, o si estas no se corresponden con la temática del grupo. Por favor dirige cualquier sugerencia al equipo administrador. Gracias por tu cooperación.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
