The workshop on Saturday was very interactive. The MFA photo students and advanced undergraduate photo students presented their projects; I decide to have the workshop emphasizes on the conceptual development of the project rather than the critique on the individual images. I loved many work presented in the workshop, some are very inspirational. We also had discussion on some other subjects such as portfolio and gallery. I received great responses from the students after the workshop; it is heartwarming for me to know that the students appreciated the class. I have in fact learned so much from them as well.
Memphis is a very characteristic city. I spent some leisure time in the hip Midtown area and a very happening downtown. I visited Memphis briefly many years ago and it seems like the downtown area has change a lot, except the same old soulful Beale Street. Did I mention the delicious southern food? I left NYC without much sleep because of the jet lag, the trip started with a delayed flight, but the rest of the trip turned out to be a blast. I just want to thank everyone in the lecture and workshop to give me a wonderful time in Memphis, especially Raleigh, Pixy and Chase, thank you guys for bringing me around. It was a wonderful experience!
