He will share a developed lexicon that can be used when taking photographs of strangers in alien environments, including how to address the rules and laws when confronting new subjects.

Lou will address common barriers such as language, protocol and hostility.

Students will be able to show their photographs for critique and review. He is one of Boston’s most diverse and inspiring photographers.
