Chicago Street Photography

live eXperience 2018

The Project

It’s not a traditional street photography workshop!
The ” Chicago Street Photography ” project was born from the idea to share our Italian Street vision with all street photographer lover in one of the amazing city of America : a real Italian learning experience outside the classroom in direct contact with people and urban elements of this American City. Street photography is more than a photographic style; Street photography is a way of doing , of living and observe  the dailylife. Our Plus is our “Italian Vision”. Be “ Italian street photographer ” means get excited for the simple things , to grasp the “candid” side of life, smiling of the grotesque but also convey, with a sweet brutality , those visions that generate emotion. CSP is a way to “speak” Italian Street Photography through photography in the homeland of Street Photography.  Andrea Sciré and Giuseppe Pons are two internationally renowned Italian street photographers, who like to share their tips and their techniques with others in a very simple and friendly way through a really full immersion experience.

The Patronage of the ICC Italian Culture Center of Chicago is the symbol of the will for a real culture exchange between people loving the Italian doing way and Italian Professional Photographers loving the American “dream”.




Street sessions on the blue(s) city





“Street photography must be done in the street, you have to feel the smell of the asphalt, the people passing close to you!” Street photography means being able to observe, it means learning to predict situations, it means being able to be ready to catch those little decisive moments.

cit. Andrea Scirè (



The Street without color is like fish without salt, I don’t like it; It tastes “not good”. The Chicago color is Blue (s)! The blue of the sky clear complement to the yellow of the sun that cuts dramatically the black shadows of the skyscrapers in Chicago … “The colors are action and suffering of light”.
