Eric Kim Street Photography Talk

Date: Friday, 20th April 2012
Time: 4:00PM – 6:00PM (Week 7)
Location: Lecture Theatre M17, Chemical Science Building

An International Street Photographer from L.A., Eric Kim will be speaking at a free public talk organised by the UNSW PhotoClub. Eric gained popularity in the online world through his blog and the workshops he runs in various countries all over the world. His positive teaching outlook helps students overcome fears of photographing strangers up close and instead encourages them to engage with their subjects.

Eric has collaborated with Leica, the Magnum photographers collective, and the Invisible Photographer Asia. He has recently taught a university level street photography course at UC Riverside Extension. Come down with questions and listen for street shooting tips, tricks and amusing anecdotes!
