NYC Subway Experience class

photo classes

On October 27th, 1904, the first subway opened in NYC, running north from City Hall to Harlem. Over the years, our city developed its neighborhoods and outer communities, to a great degree, as the train system increased its scope in different directions. Today, the subway remains a key element of our city and the urban landscape, a topic of frequent conversation, and a superb place to photograph.

In October and November 2003, in celebration of the public observance of the subway's centennial, I spent about 70 hours on the trains and in the stations - usually in dry weather, but sometimes wet - trying to evoke some of the subway experience, both the humanity and the architecture. This two part workshop recreates my exploration for a small group of photographers. We'll ride the trains to various parts of the city to document some of the NYC subway experience. 

This class is appropriate for intermediate or advanced photo enthusiasts who own DSLR equipment and a range of lenses. Additional photographs from my 2003 project can be seen here.  Class size limited to six. 
The NYC Subway Experience is one of a series of NYC area classes that I teach. See the entire schedule and sign up for my class mailing list to hear about new dates for workshops and photo outings.

Hope you can join us!
