HSFI TAs Present to the Class

One of the things we like to emphasize in our classes is that our faculty and TAs are a teaching team. Curtis Willocks, ICP faculty, says “I wanted the students to realize that we come from different parts of the world, and that our backgrounds, experiences, and photographic focuses vary.”

This year, our superstar TA team in the HSFI Photo I class is made up of Sam Margevicius, Jenia Fridlyand, and Abby Verbosky. In this week’s class, Sam helped the students with the first drafts of their Artists’ Statements, while Jenia and Abby presented some of their own personal documentary work.
