I just watched you Serving a Purpose essay. excellent. I teach photography at a inner city high school in Salt Lake City, Ut. I have a few students who might be throw away kids, but it is difficult to know- my interaction with them is limited to the classroom... and I have alot of students, 200+. each year from many backgrounds.
I want to share your essays with my classes. I find the power of the still image more rewarding and educational. Your work as a photographer servers a purpose. Thanks, keep in touch
