All the World is a Stage: Costa's Boston

Street Photography Workshop with Magnum Photographer Constantine Manos

September 8-12, 2011
Workshop fee: $810 PRC members / $850 general public
For more information & to register >>


Learn or perfect urban street photography in Boston with world-renowned Magnum photographer Constantine Manos. The city of Boston is your stage to explore, but let the master critique your creative images. Manos will conduct this five-day workshop exclusively for the PRC September 8-12, 2011.

Manos has developed an international reputation as a pioneer street photographer, using the standard tools of the trade--a small-format camera and a wide angle lens--to explore the most intimate moments and the visually compelling portraits of the cacophony of humanity played out on public thoroughfares. Manos' unique vision borrows from the intelligence and formal structure of Cartier-Bresson, the humor of Winogrand, and the critique of Frank to bring us beautiful, insightful, and structurally complex frames of his world.
