Just now I asked Range if I could change the title of this blog. Yes, photography is a prominent feature of my life and artistic expression. However, for the moment and foreseeable future my PhD studies in Art Education seem to be taking over.
It is hard to do everything in life and right now all my energy is focused on completing three PhD courses, teaching undergrad, and studying Chinese. Sometimes this makes me feel kind of grumpy and I wish there could be more time to be more creative. Other times I feel thrilled at what knowledge I’m learning and discovering.
Today I discovered a great graphic artist and illustrator that I am going to try and interview for my Graphic Design course at NTNU. Her name is Zina Saunders and she is famous for producing a series of paintings on ordinary New Yorkers entitled Overlooked New York. Check it out. It is wonderful and I would love to photograph people the way she paints them.
