August 2017 concludes a long summer of teaching photography. First stop was in June at Queens College where we spent many hours shooting on the relatively quiet grounds of the campus. This was followed by a trip to Italy where I met up with the faculty and students of the Pratt in Venice program as they visited the Biennale. Finally I taught through July and beyond in Cooper Union's Summer Intensive program which culminated in an amazing exhibit by talented teens. All our efforts can be viewed in my recently updated student website.
