This spring, I attended a photography class at the San Francisco Art Institute. The school was founded in 1871 and became a premiere school of the arts with faculty including Ansel Adams, who started the photography department with Minor White, Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston and Dorothea Lange.
The course I took challenged us to look at different themes of space- personal, political, gendered- finding essential elements to tell the story.
I was excited that the following image was chosen for the school’s juried show at the end of the semester.
