What are some highlights from your studies?


B&W photography, learning how to use a professional studio, printing processes and becoming versatile with various formats in both the darkroom and digital, photo editing and sequence selection, and how to make a series of photographs work. B&W was particularly surprising due the great darkroom and faculty team. Pinhole photography was another positive surprise. And lastly, I didn't expect to evolve so quickly in this field, in the short span of 2 years.

 

Professionally, what are you doing now?


I'm working for an artist from Florence. I was placed with him through the internship program at DIVA. After the internship, I was hired by the artist. I'm his right hand man and I do everything for him, from organization
and logistics to hands-on work for the artist's projects. Everything I learned at DIVA, computer and program- wise, plays a big role in my work. By interacting with diverse faculty members, I've learned to listen and to put their teachings into practice fairly quickly, and this helps me to be more in-tune with various professional needs at work. Even the small details, like answering the phone in Italian or writing a professional email, are things that I've learned from my professors. And most importantly, the way I see it - I work for an artist, and when he has a specific vision, I can arrive at a deeper understanding of the vision and how to carry it out from A to Z. I've traveled to London, Bari, Paris, and Azerbaijan so far, and in the future I will travel to the south of France to assist the artist with his residency program.
