A few words from me (about myself/my hobbies):

Photography. Classes given at Academy of Photography: Document.

A short description of classes given at Academy of Photography:

“It is not a picture story workshop because I do not feel like a photojournalist. In my classes I will try to encourage students to author’s interpretation of a widely understood photography document.”
