Leica Master Class Weekend with Constantine Manos | Fri, Jan. 15 - Sun, Jan. 17, 2016
Join the Leica Akademie and Magnum photographer Constantine Manos for an exciting Master Class Weekend in Miami.
Timed to coincide with an exhibition of Mano's work at the Leica Store Miami this intimate program will place an emphasis on capturing moments that transform the ordinary into the extraordinary through the lens of a camera.
The weekend will kick off with a detailed presentation highlighting Mano's life in photography and his approach to finding moments on the street. A mixture of lectures and exercises will help you move beyond simply documenting what something looks like to creating images with complexity, beauty and emotion.
Manos is a master of modern color photography and this rare opportunity to learn from his approach is sure to have a lasting impact on your personal photography, as well as the way you view the world.
This workshop is presented in partnership with the HistoryMiami Center for Photography, which explores the Miami experience through the photographic image.
