As announced at last weeks monthly meeting we are conducting an ALL MEMBERS "fundraiser" at The Field House on Saturday February 1st, 2014. For this event we will do the following:
1) we will have a general meeting where we discuss and share "Street Photography Techniques".
2) we will highlight "Street Photography" equipment and hands on demos
At this event Members may contribute to the operational funding of PPL. Contributions are voluntary and not required to attend this event but any amount contributed will go to the operation of our web site, meeting costs and materials for various events. Members who are already at the CONTRIBUTOR or BENEFACTOR level for 2014 are not being asked to contribute additional funds unless they want to.
In addition to the fundraiser you will be able to watch "Everybody Street" which is a documentary film that illuminates the lives and work of New York’s iconic street photographers and the incomparable city that has inspired them for decades. The documentary pays tribute to the spirit of street photography through a cinematic exploration of New York City, and captures the visceral rush, singular perseverance and at times immediate danger customary to these artists.
Covering nine decades of street photography, “Everybody Street” explores the careers and influences of many notable photographers––a number of whom have never been documented, featuring: Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Jill Freedman, Bruce Gilden, Joel Meyerowitz, Rebecca Lepkoff, Mary Ellen Mark, Jeff Mermelstein, Clayton Patterson, Ricky Powell, Jamel Shabazz, Martha Cooper, and Boogie, with historians Max Kozloff and Luc Sante. Hope to see everybody there ......... we will be located in the glassed in room to the right side of the filbert street entrance.
