The Art of Seeing with Laszlo Bencze

Laszlo lays no claim to being able to teach you anything. Rather he proposes to coach you to become your own teacher. The class will begin by looking at and discussing great photographs of the past, the sources of imagination. Then participants will explore the neighborhood in dusk light with eyes alone. Low angled light and interesting shadows reveal form and texture in ways that reward alertness, hence the choice of dusk for this class.
