Visual Reportage Workshops
Every March I run our Visual Reportage Workshops program in Guatemala. We work with a great organization, The God’s Child Project, documenting some of the incredible social and economic issues that face most of the population in the country. We have been here for the past week in Guatemala City, La Antigua Guatemala and Escuintla and are headed to Izabal, near the border with Belize, to work with a wild animal sanctuary for 3 days.
More photos so come!
I was lucky enough to meet a true living legend of photography, Ben Fernandez (www.benedictjfernandez.com) and mentor to my friend, Michael Hintlian. We have a Visual Reportage Workshops gallery show hanging in Ben’s Almanac Gallery in Hoboken for the next several months. Listening to Ben’s stories and enjoying the hospitality he and his wife, Siiri, extended us this weekend was just icing on the cake. Here is a quick set of images I made while taking the long-way home from the gallery after hanging our show. It is a new way of “seeing” for me something Michael has been teaching me. Reacting without thinking.
