My teaching is centered on fundamental concepts of image making and techniques of photographic craft. I consider the studio critiques and technical labs that I teach to be collaborative investigations into the mutability of the photographic medium and the significance of images in our lives.
Artists are people who refuse to ever stop looking at, learning about, intervening in, reflecting upon, and questioning the world around them. This insatiable curiosity is what drives most artists to make images and objects. I'm interested in engaging students to use their questions, ideas, impressions and feelings to inform the development of their subject matter and personal vision. In my critiques and labs I facilitate group-learning experiences that are engaging, critical, transformative, and sensitive to each students' unique curiosities.
