Adam Marelli, a photographer based in NYC (also doing a street photography workshop with me in NYC [register intent] and Calcutta India [register intent]) recently wrote up an incredible series on composition, surrealism based on the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson. Make sure to bookmark all the pages below (they are very thorough and intense) and read them when you have some time on your hands!

    I’ve read Adam’s “Surrealist Manifesto” series about 5 times. It’s the best blog series that I’ve ever read on photography.

    Here’s what he has to say about the missing part IV. (Taken verbatim from a comment he answered in part V)

    “In the original idea, there were 6 parts. I was going to do (2) parts at a time.
    But after writing Part I (which covered topics 1 & 2) I realized they should be done one at a time.

    Part II should really be called Part III and so on. I corrected the order on this one without fixing the earlier entries. “

    It’s yet to change the way I shoot, but it helps me keep an open mind to other mediums that will help me better see the world in my own perspective.
