Hello! It’s that time of week again! Time to check in about what is new with me.
- College Check-in
I am in the second week of school right now. I have met all of my professors, and I have a good sense of what lies ahead. This spring semester, I am taking two production classes that will have several film projects, a black and white photography class, and a lab for astronomy. In addition to this, I am completing a big creative project that has been in the works for a very long time. (More on that later.) There will be a mountain of work to be done in the next twelve weeks. I just hope the weather will cooperate.
2. Photography Feature: William Kooienga
One of the most memorable places I got to photograph last year was the home and studio space of artist William Kooienga. He is a self-taught artist who carves various structures out of wood. The kind of work he does combines an organic aesthetic with uniquely geometric and stylized forms. Some of his work took my breath away. The meticulous attention to detail and the sense of scale and scope of his work is astonishing. The pictures I took when I visited him last month convey more than my words ever will. Without further ado, feast your eyes on this . . .
3. My Blog Tropical Shade of Green
As mentioned in a previous update, I will be blogging less during the school semester due to my busier schedule. This month, I am featuring my creative writing with a piece exploring the qualities of light on a cloudy and rainy day. I will post the next observation of light next week. Until then, feel free to read the first installment if you have not done so already:
Well, that’s it for this update. I hope you are all staying healthy and doing something you love and enjoy.
Until next week, be kind and be generous.
