Upcoming Exhibition by NESOP Documentary Instructor, Michael Hintlian

Upcoming Exhibition by Documentary Instructor, Michael Hintlian

NESOP Documentary Instructor Michael Hintlian‘s Exhibition “No Transfer: Photographs from Public Transportation” opens August 31st at The May Gallery at Webster University, St. Louis, MO.

“All the photographs in the No Transfer gallery were made from the window of a bus or train. Starting out of a frustration with working on the street in Boston – a very difficult place for a street photographer – it grew into an absorbing project. Shooting from a bus offered new challenges, how quickly I needed to work, the right seat, dirty and tinted windows. Almost immediately something different began to happen, something I had been trying to honor for a long time, the ability to respond to the first impulse before my mind starts to run the photograph. On a bus or train there are no second chances or time to consider anything more than perception and react with a camera. Henry Wessel said it well: “…(being) outside your mind, your eyes far ahead of your thoughts.” On a bus or train there are no second chances or time to consider anything more than perception and react with a camera. And I am still learning.”

Visual Reportage workshops are coordinated by full-time New England School of Photography instructors Michael Hintlian, Documentary, and Glen Cooper, Visual Journalism.

“Beginning in 2007 our workshop mission grew from a belief that the best of our work is an instrument for change, that images have the power to give voice to the voiceless and more. Since our first workshop, widely diverse groups of accomplished photographers have traveled to Guatemala and India where they have worked stories and grew as photographers and as people.

We are excited to present this exhibit from 20 photographers who are committed to making a difference through their work.”
