Slowing DownEditing as a Creative SkillMetaphor

  Curiosity is one of my favorite tools, both as a photographer and as a teacher. I’m especially curious about language; I like to explore and clarify what people mean emotionally and psychologically when describing their personal process.
By listening closely and making connections I can support students in seeing how their photographic choices serve as metaphorical language for what is going on internally. I see photography as a window to inner landscapes. By helping cultivate curiosity I help students become more conscious of how and why they make the personal choices that lead to their unique and expressive images.
