From Street Photography to Deep Author Projects

Join photographer Souhayl A for a discussion on the role of street photography in his work and how he uses it as a springboard to build long-term projects of a post-documentary nature.

With a background in travel photography and experience capturing spontaneous images on the streets of Paris, Souhayl has used street photography to connect with people, forge links and friendships, and gain access to private parties and closed groups. Through this approach, he has been able to tell unique and atypical stories through his images. Learn more about Souhayl’s creative process and the role of street photography in his work.
