The last class of The portrait Class I taught at ICP for 10 weeks. Students projects advanced steadily. I was really proud of the results, be it a finished book on Estonians living in NY, a series of portraits on Vietnam veterans or Staten Island Ferry passengers, performance art or sculptured photographs or strait documentation of dinners in New Jersey or surreal self portraits with Lorca di Corcia lighting or Drag Queen Andora…or dramatic subway panorama-like photos.. or a document of a family house which was going to be evicted.. or a twin’s exploration of her twin… or portraits with flashlights.. from documents to fine art to performance , I think each students focused and worked hard to get hyped and moving on a real long-term project.
