No sleep till…

Well actually…lots of sleep till Brooklyn. I’m in DC right now, sleeping off the late nights and great times of the Eddie Adams Workshop, where I was fortunate enough to be asked back (I was a student in 2007) by Time Photo Editor Deirdre Read to help out as faculty this year.  It was such a positive experience, being surrounded by the young photographers who are truly going to change this industry.  Check out some of the work here, I was very very impressed by the quality of work produced by this year’s students.

In terms of news from me, I’ve been offered a position at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.  It is one of the nation’s foremost art and design schools and I will be put to use in the Communications Design program, working as a photo tech, helping to run their imaging lab, as well as organizing many of the students who work in the labs.  It is an awesome position that will but me right in the middle of an exciting, creative and academic environment.  I move this Tuesday, so for any readers in the New York area, I think we should hang out.  Just saying.

Some more G-20
