Two weeks ago I’ve got a phone call. At first “unknown number”, then on the other side I find out it’s Chiara, my history teacher from high school.
I’ve been asked to create a one-week long photography course for a selected class of high school kids in Brunico, South Tirol. Surreal, since I haven’t walked those classroom since graduation. A couple days ago I’ve received the confirmation.
One week of full immersion research and writing, to find out I’m not even that fresh about some concepts anymore. I produced a twenty page packet in which I explain photography in my terms – the way i wish it was taught to me. Lots of politically incorrect words, examples and experiment. I guess i was just trying to exorcise the fear that “who knows how to do it, just does it. Who doesn’t quite know, teaches it.”
