Who inspired you to launch this venture?

As a photographer, I am fortunate to be surrounded by a few supportive artists, business colleagues, and friends who inspire me. It was one of these colleagues who inspired me to apply for the fellowship.

Where will your venture be in a year?

My photographic project will be complete and displayed within the community. I will be working on other photojournalistic projects with the intent to inspire and educate my audience.

What is your vision for the fellowship program?

My vision is that all fellows have an opportunity to meet and be inspired by each other – and then bring that inspiration back into their communities.

What are the biggest challenges you face? Continue Reading PresenTense 2012 – Meet the Fellows!…
