17th April  –  Street Photography by Valerie Jardin

Renowned French street photographer, Valerie Jardin, will give a talk on Street Photography on Wednesday the 17th April at 7 PM. The talk will be via Zoom and the meeting will be run from the SASNEV Hall, Pinelands.

Valérie Jardin is an award-winning French photographer who is internationally recognised for her street photography. Her work is characterized by a strong sense of narrative, capturing candid moments with a discerning eye for composition and a keen understanding of light and shadow.
She teaches and mentors other photographers through international workshops, online courses, conferences, exhibits, podcasts and over a dozen books. In her zoom presentation for CTPS on 17th April, Valérie will give an overview of the different ways to approach street photography. She says you will get an intimate insight into her thought and creative process, from visualization to capture, as she takes you on a photo walk through a series of recent photographs. “You will leave this presentation with renewed vision and a desire to capture moments of everyday
life,” she promises.
Her presentations are live only and she does not allow recordings.
