One of the courses I am teaching is the advanced photo class. Its a small group...all women. For our our first assignment I asked them to document their life in whatever style they photograph in. I had several intentions with this. First, I was curious what they would come up with. Secondly, it is hard to step into someones artistic development without having seen much of their work and be able to give much helpful advice or critique. Thirdly, not only was the project intended to help me become acquainted with their work, but also them as students and perhaps, depending upon how honest they are, the complexities of their lives. After giving the assignment, I thought that I was in somewhat of an interesting place to do the same thing. The work is intended to highlight in someway my current existence...living in Minot with a family during the week and at my own apartment with my wife on the weekends.
