David Gleave's

Manchester-based photographer David Gleave cites among his influences Robert Frank, Robert Capa, Eugene Smith, Bruce Davidson, Garry Winogrand, William Eggleston, William Klein and Mary Ellen Mark. All legends. And, gauging from the sample images of his book, In The City, Gleave is doing work that they just might approve of.

Gleave, who holds a Licentiateship distinction from The Royal Photographic Society, has collated a number of striking images for his debut publication, In The City. Just like the title implies, Gleave says his primary theme is the characters and scenes found at the heart of our larger urban communities. Images of Manchester comprise over half the impressions in his new book, and the same echoes resonate from other cities captured exclusively in mono, including London and New York in particular.

Flash Street Photography Workshops in Athens

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

As I have mentioned in the previous workshops post I wrote a few months ago, I really enjoy shooting with flash because I like the surreal results that come from this type of street photography. Flash Street Photography excites me and I want to share this excitement with you by teaching you about this style of shooting at my Flash Street Photography Workshops in Athens.

It has now been 3 years since I started shooting Flash Street Photography and to my surprise I have found out that most people don’t really care about the flash. Some even give me the feeling that they don’t have any problem at all with Flash Street Photography. I think the reason for this is the upfront style of a flash shot that makes it a more sincere action that let’s say when one is lurking in the shadows capturing sly shots and I think that is how people see it. What I mean is there is nothing sneaky about a flash shot. It is brutally honest. There is no doubt about what the street photographer is doing. This gives me even more incentive to keep on trying this style of street photography and now I feel that I know enough to share my experiences with you.

Meryl Meisler, the outstanding documenter of the 70’s and 80’s New York disco and punk scenes, is bent on ending the year with a bang with her Determined December! One of Time Magazine’s Unsung American Female Photographers of the Past Century, who was known for documenting the wild heat and abandon of those scenes, is turning up the heat herself!

On December 21, Meisler is presenting Let’s Talk SASSY!, an artist talk on and book signing for her work, Paradise & Purgatory: SASSY ’70s Suburbia & The City.

The South Bronx, suburbia, The Mystery Club, dance lessons, Girl Scouts, the Rockettes, the circus, school, mitzvahs, proms, weddings, gay Fire Island, the Hamptons, feminists, happy hookers, CBGB, Punks, Disco, After Hours and Go-Go Bars, Jewish and LGBT Pride, street life, home theatrics, holidays, friendship, family and love… all were captured by Meisler and her medium format camera. As she danced the night away, she photographed it as well.
