Interview with Focus on the Story on My Street Photography Workshop Philosophy by Chris Suspect

There is a nice interview on Focus on the Story with me about my upcoming street photography workshop, May 29-May 31, that’s part of the larger Focus on The Story Festival. In the interview I touch on how I run my workshops and the kinds of things I want my students to take away.

By being a student of photographic history and a dedicated practitioner of the craft, you will ideally find yourself in a better position to recognize more visual opportunities and be able to express them with your own unique vision.

There are still some spots available so if you are interested please visit the official workshop page. You can also take this workshop a la carte if you do not want to register for the festival. One other cool thing about this workshop is that all the participating students will have their work projected during the opening party which is a great way for your work to be seen by many of the influential guests and presenters that will be there.

This May 16-19 I will be in Milan, Italy as a featured presenter during Street Photo Milano. The focus of my lecture will be on several of my black and white projects over the years, including Gratuity Included, Faith and Suspect Device.

Gratuity Included is a 7 plus year project that explores the party lives of millennials around the globe. It’s a raucous look at how young adults socialize in the digital age.

Faith is a year-long deep dive into a group of gay African Americans in Washington DC that have empowered themselves to create their own social and religious community in the face of racial, homophobic and religious discrimination.

And, Suspect Device is my personal four-year-long look into the punk and hardcore music scene in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.

I will be speaking at 5 p.m. of Friday, May 17 at BASE Milano, Via Bergognone 34, 20144 Milano.

Other presenters include Matt Stuart, Jacob Are Sobol, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Eléonore Simon, Fulvio Bugani, Michael 'Monty' May, and many more.
