Alex Webb, Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, 1996; from Alex Webb: La Calle (Aperture/Televisa Foundation, 2016)

The tenth lesson challenges students to make spontaneous, natural-looking photographs of people on the street. Unlike the previous lesson where students collaborated with their subjects, lesson ten is about becoming comfortable photographing strangers in public and realizing that it takes time to make a successful photograph.
