BFA Photography Department faculty member Abby Robinson, who was recently interviewed by NYFA, has been blogging for Photo District News since late May about this year’s Digital Photography in Shanghai Arts Abroad program. Her first post discussed her preparation for the trip as well as a glimpse into previous projects that resulted from the program. You can find all of her posts here.
Robinson was joined in her travels by seven students and a student translator. The program ends on July 2 and allows participants to explore Shanghai culture with opportunities for portfolio reviews by some of the top members of the Chinese art community. For more details about Robinson and the group’s journey, visit the Shanghai Digital Photography Residency blog.
