This inspiring event will cover Craig giving a presentation of his photographic journey including sharing the story of meeting Elliot Erwitt Magnum Photographer, and discussing his book Unposed.
Good photographs are tough enough to shoot. Really funny ones are even harder. Good and funny photographs observed in nature not arranged or manipulated but simply observed in real time with amazing consistency, constitute a minor miracle now presented in Mr. Semetko’s book…In my book he is the essential photographer. That is, the one who sees what others could not have seen.
