Street Photography is one of the most beloved photographic genres, both from general public and photo enthusiasts. It’s simply, in its essence, the photographic tale of life and of its most intriguing, romantic, ironic and contradictory aspects.

Leica has been and still is, due to its essentiality and immediacy, the preferred tool of the photographers who made this genre legendary. That’s why the Leica Akademie Italy has decided to create a series of workshops dedicated to the “Street”, featuring Eolo Perfido, that have immediately earned a remarkable success, and keep on being brought up in the most important Italian towns.
