‘streets on film’ with

jorge garcia


Jorge Garcia is a NYC based freelance photographer. He spends most of his time wandering sidewalks looking for interesting spontaneous moments. He always shoots candidly and rarely speaks to the people he captures. Influences include Garry Winogrand, Matt Stuart, Gus Powell, Aaron Berger, and Andre Wagner to name a few. Clients include Vice, Konbini, AirBnb, and Next Level UK.

In 2015, he founded the NYC Street Photography Collective (NYC-SPC) as a way for local street photographers to meet and share their thoughts on the genre as an alternative to web based communities. The goal was to establish a local community for street photographers to exchange ideas, experiences, photographs, while promoting the art of shooting street.

Jorge has organized and curated several shows in NYC as well as designed, edited, and published a variety of magazines and books.

A celebrated instructor the world over, Matt  will offer constructive feedback and discuss ways to improve technique and images.

This will be a classroom and shooting workshop, combining lectures, technique, critique and editing. Commencing on the evening of Friday and concluding on the afternoon of Sunday. These workshops will be an immersive and inspiring street photography experience not to be missed.

about matt stuart

Matt Stuart is one of the most experienced and influential street photographers of the modern era. He has been shooting the streets of London for over 20 years and taken his craft around the world, making compelling images and passing on his passion for street photography wherever he travels. He is a long-time member of the street photography collective Un-Public (formerly In-Public), is a member of MAPS Images, and has taught workshops for Leica across Europe, America, and Asia. His work has been widely exhibited and his monograph All That Life Can Afford has sold out of its two editions. AUSSIE STREET is delighted to be bringing Matt to Australia to teach and present his work for the first time.

Born in 1974, Matt Stuart was raised in the leafy suburbs of Harrow, North West London. He admits to a less than distinguished school career, but was called upon aged 11 to play a trumpet solo in front of the Queen Mother. Her Majesty’s reaction is not recorded. A little later, in 1986, Matt discovered skateboarding after watching the film “Back to the Future”. Skating occupied his every waking moment until 1994, when he looked up from the half-pipe and noticed that girls had got a lot more interesting. He also indulged in a brief, ill-advised affair with Kung Fu. Matt’s father, keenly aware that his son would never be the next Bruce Lee, introduced him to photography, handing over books by Robert Frank & Henri Cartier-Bresson. Ever since then, photography has been Matt’s overriding passion, although he’s still quite interested in skateboards and girls. (But thankfully not Kung Fu).
