Constantine Manos (1934-)
"The flow of people in a setting, their changing relationships to each other and their environment, and their constantly changing expressions and movements - all combine to create dynamic situations that provide the photographer with limitless choices of when to push the button.
By choosing a precise intersection between subject and time, he
may transform the ordinary into the extraordinary and the real into the surreal."

Regarding Mr. Manos's
photos and the interview, that color work does make me long somewhat for the old days.
It's not easy, when possible at all, to digitally recreate that kind of warmth and saturation.
David; I've always loved Mr Manos'
So, to champion the idea of taking a workshop with someone on the level of Mr. Manos
, or David, or Maestro, that is, someone who has proven their ability to change the language or add to the vocabulary of photography, I'd like to think in some sort of romantic, idealized way, these teachers are highly intent and sincere in pushing their students to achieve something extraordinary.
