Harvey Stein, director of photography at Umbrella Arts, is going to Buenos Aires for Carnaval and you are invited to join him. Travel to beautiful Buenos Aires, Argentina for nine days of photographing many of the special events and places of this surprising country.

 

During Carnival there are all sorts of comparsas (people dressed up in colorful costumes parading in the streets) and murgas (people playing music in the streets). We have special access to photograph the comparsas and the murgas. We will also visit the oldest neighborhoods in the city, where  the Spanish and Italian immigrants arrived in the 1800’s and where today we find artists and dancers performing in the streets.

 

Harvey Stein is a well known photographer of people in the streets, on location and in the studio.  Recognized as a dedicated and sensitive teacher, Harvey has taught at most of the major workshops in the United States and at over a dozen workshops in Europe and Mexico.  He currently teaches at the International Center of Photography.
