NYC Street Photographer: Markus Hartel

Teaser for an experimental documentary that follows the thought and progress of the very popular contemporary NYC Street Photographer: Markus Hartel.

The final documentary will follow Hartel through the Streets of New York City while portraying the emotions and decisions of a street photographer. The crucial question of this documentary deals with the climax of capturing the moment as it evolves in front of ones eyes. Precisely: Is a street photograph no more than a Déjà vu of the photographer and does the decisive moment - the finger releasing the shutter - merely confirm it and thus create the photograph from a memory?

In to-be-shot episodes of urban New York City workshop experiences attendees will be invited to take part in the documentary by explaining the process and progression of their perception. Directed, filmed and edited by Dennis Greenberg
