Kour Magic Gymnastics

This is not exactly a new project, but I've been super lazy with posting. This is for a documentary class I am taking this quarter. I have no idea where it's going right now so if anyone's got suggestions feel free to comment!

the trip....

So overall the trip was..........good. I think. I learned a lot anyway. I think it was really helpful to meet with everyone, an awesome opportunity. It was both exciting and stressful. Exciting to go to all the places we went and see what it's all about. Some of the places we visited are ones I never thought I would have the chance to see in person and meet with people from there. However it was a little nerve-wrecking and stressful hearing what they all had to say. It makes me nervous I'll never get to the point they are at, but after hearing over and over again how if you really want something, you will get there eventually, I have some hope.

And I'll write more about this when I catch up on sleep a little!

NYC Day 4

ICP-Mexican Suitcase exhibit was pretty unbelievable, I had heard of it and sort of knew a bit of the background but to actually see all the negatives and get to read about it was awesome

TIME was probably my favorite place we have been to all week. If I did have the chance to work at or with any of these magazines, papers, organizations, it would most definitely be Time. The thing that seemed to really be stressed there was having your own style. You want people to recognize your photos as yours. Got to see all of Yuri Kozyrev's photos which were amazing.

Sports Illustrated seemed to cause a little drama within the group, but I'm glad we got to go. I realize my dad has a better chance of getting a job with SI than I do, but it was really great to see such amazing photos and listen to Steve Fine talk about the business and how important it is to make pictures that tell a story. That wasn't really what I was expecting to hear at a sports place, but that gives me hope!
