This year in our Community Partnership with Mt. Sinai Adolescent Health Center, we are focusing on our personal evolutionary goals through photography, group psychotherapy, writing, and public speaking.
On the first day of class, we set out on our journey by creating partner portraits to photograph our evolutionary goals. This assignment introduced us to DSLR cameras. During the shoot, we shot worm’s eye views, bird’s eye views, representational portraits, and communicating our ideas through gesture. This shoot helped us face personal issues that are going on in our lives, and in the world we live in.
