One of the most important lessons from the this project was the power of collaboration and reporting. In this case I feel like having the quotes and the captions and being able to read Kelly’s full text really enhances the viewing experience of the images and adds another layer of understanding

Emerging Talent – Jabin Botsford

I failed a bunch of classes my first semester, I just took a whole semester of general education and absolutely hated it. Next semester I decided I was going to take photography classes, because my community college had a photo program which covered all types of photography.

Alicia Hansen: Salt of the Earth

People always ask, “What does NYC SALT stand for?” I wanted a name that spoke to who we wanted to be in the community and what we wanted to do in the lives of the students we serve. Salt flavors and preserves. Every good photo story starts with a photographer being moved to tell a story of unrepresented people, or to give a voice to an issue that needs attention

Stacy Pearsall: Paying It Forward

I’d have to say I spent the majority of my time thinking like a journalist – that’s what I was trained to do. In fact, I rarely carried a long rifle because I felt it distracted me from my real job. I kept a pistol on my hip for “oh shit” moments. I was of the mind that if the situation got bad enough, I could probably find a rifle not in use. This was the case only a couple times for me. Even during the most intense gun battles, I forced myself to stay behind my camera and not get behind the gun.
