An important part of my artistic practice is pedagogy.

Thanks to ICP’s community outreach programming, I have been TA’ing a B&W photography class with the Curtis Willocks at the High School of Fashion Industries in Manhattan.  A few weeks ago I attempted to teach the kids how to write an artist statement. Here is Lauryn Desarden reading her fantastic artist statement.

In the summertime I escape to the Sierra mountains, where I teach a Zine-making program at a 30 year old skateboard camp on a lake that has hosted YMCA summer camps for over a century. Here is a spread from camper Zachary Mosher in conversation with professional skateboard photographer Brian Gabermanzacmosher.jpg
