Learn how to make photographs of people and the setting of Oaxaca, Mexico, with New York City street photographer Amy Touchette. There is no place on earth like Oaxaca. With a blend of interesting and friendly characters, Spanish Colonial architecture, beautiful light, and the patina of time, it is a photographer's dream location.
The city of Oaxaca was not damaged by the earthquakes earlier this year. Businesses are open, and the people are going about their daily lives. https://www.cntraveler.com/story/want-to-help-oaxaca-mexico-dont-cancel-your-travel-plans
Based in downtown Oaxaca—arguably Mexico's most exciting city, world famous for its food, beautiful architecture, friendly people, galleries, and cultural heritage—you’ll spend mornings in class discussion with Amy and afternoons completely free to photograph as you feel inclined. Seek founder Andrew Sullivan and Oaxaca photographer Romina Hierro will also attend to facilitate the workshop. The addition of two bilingual professional photographers will ease any translation concerns students might have.
Some of the topics this workshop will cover are:
We will also look at the photographs you make as the week progresses (should you choose to share) and discuss the experiences you’re having while photographing in Oaxaca.
Oaxaca is an exciting, art-filled, beautiful blend of the ancient and modern. It is a bustling city nestled in the rugged mountain range Sierra Madre del Oaxaca, and at times feels like a small town in many places. From El Zocalo, the city's central plaza, street life radiates outward toward nearby cultural hotspots such as the Centro Fotografico Manuel Alvarez Bravo , the library of the Instituto de Artes Graficas de Oaxaca, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Textile Museum of Oaxaca, to name just a few of the inspiring gems within walking distance from our headquarters.
