Lumen Dei Photographic Tours

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

Based in Srinagar, Kashmir, India, Frontier Treks & Tours is collaborating with The Digital Trekker and Pixelated Image to offer the Lumen Dei Photographic Workshop and Tour.

Lumen Dei is a unique experience; it is a photographic tour that tells you not where to point your camera, but why. While there is plenty of instruction on the technical end of things, Lumen Dei assumes you already know where the shutter button is. Instead, our focus is on providing you with a rich cross-cultural experience and insights into eastern life and culture that simply can’t be gained on a traditional photo tour.

Our express purpose is to open western eyes to unfamiliar people and places and to teach those eyes to shoot from the heart and tell compelling stories through the camera.

Paul McDonough, NY City 1968-1972

Friday, October 19th, 2007

Paul McDonough arrived in New York City in 1967 with a 35mm camera and an entrée, through childhood friend Tod Papageorge, into the photography workshops and social networks of street photographer Garry Winogrand. Emerging from an early career as a studio easel painter, McDonough found photographing on the streets of New York liberating: “it satisfied my sketching impulses… I learned to carry a camera everywhere, all the time, loaded with 400-speed film”.
