    Street Focus 102: Streets of the World – Detroit with Andrew Shields

    Street Focus 102: Streets of the World – Detroit with Andrew Shields

    Street Focus 102: Streets of the World - Detroit with Andrew Shields



    This week on this episode of Street Focus, we are going to Detroit, Michigan and Andrew Shields is your local guide for this new adventure!



    Who is Andrew Shields?



    A Metro Detroiter since I could crawl, I've always had an interest in the city. Trips to Tiger Stadium with my parents as a child, then live music with my now wife in the city's small venues as a teen; Detroit remains a destination. Photography classes in my youth taught me the fundamentals and darkroom processing. As film transitioned to digital I took a break from shooting but when I learned that mirrorless systems allowed for adapting classic manual lenses to modern bodies my passion for photography was reignited. Today I shoot as often as possible, preferring candid street scenes with considered compositions over other photographic disciplines. When I'm not shooting you can find me hunting down the vintage lenses that I find at local thrift stores and estate sales which I use for all of my street photography.

    Street Focus 101: Through Our Eyes Project with Jason Williamson

    Street Focus 101: Through Our Eyes Project with Jason Williamson

    Street Focus 101: Through Our Eyes Project with Jason Williamson



    About the Project: The Through Our Eyes Project hands out cameras to people who are living on the street, in a local shelter or are otherwise affected by homelessness. Unlike any project before, the homeless in communities will have an integral hand in helping expose the issue of homelessness rather than merely being the problem that others are trying to solve. Through Our Eyes Project is bigger than a social experiment. It's greater than an art piece. It's more important than an outreach. This project is a lifeline. The photographers will be equipped with a tool to tell their story. They will be encouraged through a word of hope. The community will be engaged to support those who work with the homeless and proceeds will help fund homeless ministries. The cameras are disposable, but the people behind them are not.



    About Jason: Jason Williamson is a pastor in Spartanburg, South Carolina. After studying photography at Winthrop University, Jason worked in digital advertising sales for 10 years prior to transitioning to a career in ministry. Going on an international mission trip to a megacity in Asia changed his perspective on how he should be living his life as a Christian. Photography has been one of his passions for nearly 18 years and has become a critical tool for his ministry work as it tells stories, captures events and rethinks the role of the arts in missions and ministry.

    Jason travels around the world as part of his ministry and enjoys street photography, abstracts and making ugly or disinteresting things look beautiful for people to see in a new way. He loves his wife and two children, listening to music, watching documentaries, and enabling others to use their gifts and talents to do great things.

SisterDanger ,

Finally a Street Podcast.

A must for street or travel photographers!

synthesaur ,

not a very good interviewer

The interviewer likes the sound of her own voice too much

Nqslk ,

Lost potential.

I think the 'virtual tour’ format became very old after the first few episodes. ‘I land here. Where do I go next and how do I get there?’, ‘Ok I’m here what is there to shoot?’, ’So I arrived here from there…’, etc. It all amounts to very little and the opportunity to gain something greater from these guests is lost. The host seems to be intent on drawing the guest into her version of what shooting in a given city should be and by doing so the more intimate knowledge of the guest is completely bypassed. If you ask questions of someone from the perspective of a typical tourist you’re going to get fairly standard answers. There is nothing here that you couldn’t surmise from reading a Lonely Planet guide. Where are the hidden gems? The places tourists don’t go? What are the motivations and processes of the guest photographer? We could learn a lot more by exploring how and why the guest shoots his city rather than how he or she thinks a tourist with limited time might attempt to do so.

Finally there is the issue of the actual interview. The last episode I listened to featured Fokko Muller. At several points during the interview he was completely cut off by the host mid-sentence and at one point I recall he actually attempted to wrestle his way back into the conversation. Inconsiderate and impolite of the host? Absolutely. Worst, most of the host’s verbalization was about her own experience and thoughts about shooting in Amsterdam. Wasn’t that why the guest was being interviewed? Maybe not the best forum for the host to showcase her knowledge! The interview format as it stands is akin to a tour guide trying to rush her group through multiple sites on schedule but in doing so offering little in terms of depth. The listening audience might get to see a little deeper beneath the surface if the host could throw away her pre-conceived agenda and allow her guests to express themselves fully.
