Our efforts to get more students involved here at Cassilhaus are starting to pay off. My friend and wonderful photographer Harrison Haynes, a recent Bard MFA, has started teaching at Durham Academy and brought three sections of his intro photo classes to see Lisa McCarty's MFA thesis show (more on that in another post when the stars align) and some of the permanent collection here. It was fascinating to see them try to wrap their brains around her handmade analog film cameras and more conceptual work when their photo world to date has pretty much revolved around their iPhones.
Fortunately Lisa was on hand to explain her work to the students
Frank had to pinch hit for one class.
