William Jenkins: Teaching, Curating and Photographing

I will make a brief presentation including my work as a curator, photographer and, most of all, teacher. I have taught at the Arizona State University School of art since 1979 and have always thought of myself as a teacher first and an artist second. While this is not what one normally does at a research university it is what I have done. For the last six years I have made portraits, mostly of people I know. I will show some of these and talk informally about my work as a teacher.

Sheila Pinkel: Teaching Photography: An Odyssey of Discovery

I have always approached teaching as an act of discovery both for myself and my students. The goal for everyone, including me, was to learn more about ourselves and the world through direct observation and investigation. The mantra was, "If you always know what you are doing, then you haven't discovered anything." My teaching focused on two areas: classes in the use of light phenomena, both low tech and high tech, to make artworks, and documentary classes where students finally made image/text books of the results of their explorations.
