Last week we (Street Gang Photos) hosted iN-PUBLIC photographer Richard Bram for an intense one-day workshop.

One of the drills Richard gave the students was to stand for one hour at a street corner, working only the corner and not wandering around.

Although I came along for documenting the workshop for our Facebook page, this drill intrigued me as I usually lack the patience to stand in one place and I’m always on the move. I think that my lack of patience is mostly due to the fact that most of the time such approach is required when working on juxtapositions using signs which is a bit of a cliché…

I decided to pick up the challenge and stand in one place for an hour but instead of looking for the cliché juxtapositions, I was focusing on the small gestures of humanity as I usually like to capture while wandering the streets but this time without moving of course.

So here is my catch from one hour – 60 minutes on the street corner

Friday, October 5th – Tel-Aviv Israel

Bram will be visiting Israel for the International Photography Festival taking place in Jaffa from October 2nd till October 8th. iN-Public will be exhibiting in the festival along side Street Gang in an exhibition curated by Street Gang co-founder – Felix Lupa.

Born in Philadelphia in 1952, Bram grew up in Ohio, Utah and Arizona, where he finished High School, College and Graduate School, earning degrees in Political Science and International Business. A series of lack-lustre jobs led him to Louisville, Kentucky, where, in 1984, he decided to pursue photography full-time as a vocation. he built his early career in public relations, public events, performance and portrait work.

After moving to London in 1997, Bram concentrated on street photography and other personal photographic projects. In July of 2008 he returned to the States and now lives in New York City. His work is in institutional, corporate, and personal collections, including the Museum of London, Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography. In 2001 Bram was invited to join iN-PUBLiC Street Photography collective.
