it has been a wild few days. lots going on and i got myself sick. so i am lying in bed without the energy to make any substantial posts. here is a very brief update: monday, i started teaching photography at Ulster County Community College. It seems like a great group of students and i am very excited. it is an interesting class- it is technically Photo 1 but they have gotten rid of their darkroom so it is now conducted as a digital class. i really want to find a balance between offering photoshop lessons and teaching them about photo history-composition-camera techniques. anyone who has taught this kind of class- please let me know. would love to hear about other experiences.
on tuesday i went to nyc to attend my first CPW Advisory Board meeting. lots of photo heavy weights there. it was pretty impressive to be in a room with some of new york's art world's finest. overall, good meeting. lots of effective advice.
i cheked out some art while i was down there. Dawoud Bey's show Class Pictures at Aperture Gallery was very impressive.
He is coming to CPW this summer as a workshop instructor. I could not be more excited. The show is beautiful- I suggest checking it out. You will be able to sign up for his workshop in April. I will keep you posted.
I have to get some rest and of course, watch the Lost premiere tonight. I will check back in when I am healthier.
