Suwon International Photo Festival

Added on by Jaime Permuth.

Set in Guatemala, a country utterly torn-apart by violence, El Sistema is a photographic document of symphonic youth orchestras and how the fellowship and discipline of learning classical music brings hope, self-esteem and the joy of culture to the lives of thousands of children who so desperately need it.

I am thrilled that a selection of 25 images from the project will be on view in Seoul, Korea as part of the Suwon International Photo Festival.

Shana Tova / Happy New Year 5779

"I gave you, for

your earlobes, for your fingers,

I gilded the time on your wrist,

I hung many shining things on you

so that you'd move in the wind

for me, chime softly over my head,

to soothe my sleep."

Words from Yehuda Amichai, "Love Gifts"

and a photograph from my series "Manhattan Mincha Map".

Added on by Jaime Permuth.

Good morning, Taos! We started the day off with waffles, coffee and a little Coltrane.  Farmers market in Taos next.  Now a two hour mountain hike before lunch.  This afternoon students get individual half hour portfolio review sessions with the instructors.  Then some down time before another one of Jonathan’s amazing home cooked festive dinners.  Day one at Antidote Retreat.

Photography Workshop for Teens at NY Film Academy

Added on by Jaime Permuth.

I spent last week with a group of fifteen talented and precocious teenagers at NYFA Photography. 

We had an amazing workshop in and out of the studio.  Participants had a chance to try their hand at street portraiture, street photography, urban landscapes and studio lighting. 

Here’s a portrait of Briana by Marygrace using a single, continuous light source.  I’ll definitely be missing these young men and women.

Private workshop in New York!

Added on by Jaime Permuth.

Last week I had the great pleasure of welcoming Yana Nosenko, a young photographer from Moscow for an intensive one-on-one photography workshop.  We focused mainly on street and documentary practice, including one really fun, experimental day using off-camera flash and wireless triggers.

Day 2  /  Private Workshop


July 4th, who will save us?

Destination: Central Park, the great green heart of New York City.  Could the park - its meadows, boulders, lush trees and its flock of humanity - help us get a pulse on the mood of the city?

Celebration or lamentation?

Something in between?
