Today I went for a lovely 6am walk with Karl Edwards in Provincetown. Karl Edwards is a street photographer based in Toronto, and is also doing the Magnum workshop with Constantine Manos. We have a lively chat about street photography, shooting on the Leica M-E, and his new venture: “Street Shootr” — which is the Petapixel for street photography (breaking news on street photography).
Bruno Barbey shares a lecture at the Magnum Days event in Provincetown– enjoy!

Having some fun shooting portraits with Quoc and Kile in Provincetown with Heather Bruce, a local painter here. We met her at a local bar at night, shared her life story, and showed us her beautiful home by the water on commercial drive.

As always, thank you to everyone who participated in our Assignment No. 3. Special thanks goes to our editor’s choice Jomel Bartolome a.k.a. Dada Bear for picking this very interesting and challenging assignment for. It not only tests our skills in making a street photograph but it also asks us to challenge how to tell a story with a single photograph with his added task of showing what it feels like to be in a land foreign and different from yours. Offcourse, that isn’t the only way to interpret the theme.
Without further ado, here are some of the interpretations of Assignment No. 3, Foreigners!
Today was my first day of the Magnum workshop with Constantine Manos which has been absolutely incredible. I’ve put together some notes I wanted to share with you guys, for those who couldn’t make it. I’ll put together a full write-up of the lessons I’ve learned, but read more to see all my notes so far!
Dana Danzel, a drag queen at a bar. I approached and asked her if I could take a few photos. I loved her personality, and blue accents. Shot a roll of Kodak Portra 400 on her on my Leica, and shot a few photos with my phone to email her. Provincetown, 2014.
Just flew out from sfo this morning at 6am and arrived for the meet and greet for the Magnum Workshop. Was met with a beautiful sunset, and was able to meet some great folks. Also had a great chat with Song, the Magnum workshops coordinator.
I’m currently re-reading “Antifragile” by Nassim Taleb, one of my favorite authors.
One of the views he has on life is to trust to trust disconfirmation over confirmation, and that much of happiness in life is knowing what not to do (relying on external validation from others, falling into consumerism, being a consumer over being a producer, deal with a miserable commute) than what to do.
I am currently in Melbourne, and about to head back home to the states after being abroad for nearly 3 months. A travel itinerary I had:
Street photography is the most difficult type of photography out there. There is so little we can control, and it takes a lot of courage and confidence to shoot in the streets.
