What was your most challenging assignment as a photography student?
[S.W.]The most challenging assignments for me have been still life assignments. I’ve always found them difficult to complete because my main desire to shoot women in narrative. Another challenging experience is accepting failure in projects you work hard on. I’ve needed to be extremely critical in order to grow and that sometimes is really difficult to accept in series I’ve become attached to.
What do you love about the school?
[S.W.] I love the people that are in this school for they have made my time here so much better. I think the support of growing with other artists has significantly changed my ability to produce a higher level of artwork.
