Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt wrote about Semetko’s work: “Good photographs are tough enough to shoot. Really funny ones are even harder. Good and funny photographs observed in nature not arranged or manipulated but simply observed in real time with amazing consistency, constitute a minor miracle.”
From October 14 to 16, Craig Semetko presented his mode of operation, and offered suggestions on how to be produce street photography with that certain extra something. After first getting to know each other, the participants set out to hunt for pictures in the streets and squares of Hamburg – all the way from the Town Hall to the famous Fish Market. They later discussed and edited the pictures together, so that the outcome of their rich and busy weekend could be presented.
