In 1997, David Bradford, a New York-based artist and photographer, went to Liberty Island to shoot a cover picture for the New York Community Trust’s Annual Report. The Trust chose the Statue of Liberty for its cover purposefully.
The liberty to chart our own destiny, to determine for ourselves how to define and seek out a better life, goes to the heart of the American experiment. Of Jefferson’s famous trio of inalienable rights – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, Liberty is perhaps the most prized by Americans, the one for which we have again and again shown ourselves willing to risk the other two.
David Bradford’s initial assignment to photograph the Statue of Liberty became the basis for this collection of photos. These expressive monochrome images and the accompanying writings – selected by original designer Barry Wells – celebrate what David calls “an homage to America; what we originally stood for, and what we still stand for.” Although time and events have added a rich patina of meanings to Bartholdi’s great masterpiece, those original values still shine out in Bradford’s lustrous and heroic images.

Much like his work, Markus is a man of contrast. Tattooed knuckles, a mohawk and body piercings adorn a man who obviously bucks “the establishment”. His abandonment of a conventional corporate life and his reluctance to take on commercial work, stem from a personal refusal to compromise. Inspired by authenticity and story, Markus’ dedication doesn’t fit into a standard 9 to 5 cubicle and can’t be contrived by an art director for a campaign. Hartel says “I press the shutter button for myself, and not for the money. It’s not that I don’t occasionally shoot on spec… but any projects I take on must appeal to my aesthetic”.
Following the publication of “Drive-By Shootings,” Bradford began looking for new ways to expand his repertoire. A chance encounter, led him to embrace the new technology of the cell phone video camera. These cameras enable him to capture 15 seconds of images, as opposed to the brief flash of the camera shutter. A decidedly low-resolution camera in a high-tech medium, Bradford’s blasts capture impressionistic moments of New York City street life, ever fluid and in motion.
We all shoot digital for the obvious reasons, and digital photography is a lot more convenient than film photography, but you can learn a lot from the constraints of photographing with online gaming film. Besides, who doesn’t love the look of a film negative printed in the darkroom?
Richard Sandler will take you out in the streets of New York City’s East Village to work within the limits of film. You’ll go out to shoot a roll of film and head back into the LoL darkroom to develop and print your own black-and-white film.
Appointments are made on a first come, first serve basis – payments must be received 72 hours before the scheduled event.

[tab:About Your Instructor]
Richard Sandler was born in New York City in 1946 to a Polish/Russian family of artsy American-Jewish intellectuals. He began photographing in Boston in 1977, and he knew right away that “the street” was his calling.
One month into shooting on the streets of Boston, Sandler took a workshop with Garry Winogrand, which solidified his resolve to become a photographer. Sandler quickly became a photojournalist to make a living, shooting picture stories and portraits for newspapers and magazines.
He moved back to New York City in 1980 and began a 12-year freelance career shooting almost daily for the New York Times and other publications.
Sandler began shooting documentary street videos and films about the
gentrifying urban environments of New York (and Los Angeles) in 1999:
“The Gods of Times Square” 1999
“Brave New York” 2004
“Everybody is Hurting” 2007
“Forever and Sunsmell” 2010
“Radioactive City” 2011
