How's it Going?

Well, almost two months ago I blogged that I'd be starting my MA in Photography and I haven't given an update at all in my progress and how it's going. 

The program has been excellent. I have proficient teachers, a diverse cohort, and challenging material/projects. I've had to wrestle with concepts in photography related to my practice that I've never had to think about before. These topics are a variety of things--like the ethics of photography, photography being global, collaboration, etc. All the topics have been perfect for what I needed to work through and I didn't even realize it beforehand! All this to say, I'm extremely grateful for the program.

While there are certain things we have to do in the course of this program, the main one is our proposed project, which we have to complete by the end of the program. I think I've settled on my proposed project, which is a project on fathers and their children. I'm hoping to take assumptions of fathers and their relationship with their children and show actually what it's like where I live, hoping to break some of those stereotypes that exist. I have much to flesh out, but I'm excited about what I'll learn from this!! I'll post more about this as I discover more!

That's all for now, but one more thing to note is that my plan is to begin blogging again, so be looking out for most posts. It won't be daily like before, but my goal is around 4 times a week. We'll see how it goes. :)

Have a great week!
