Alumni Profile: Scott Achs, 2011

’11 NESOP Grad Scott Achs was recently the featured artist for ‘Viewfinder’, an ongoing series that appears on the Official Blog of the Impossible Project.

“I usually think of myself as a contrarian, but from time to time, for the sake of inspiration, I find it important to experience a cliche. With this in mind, I put on my mid-October tourist hat, and along with my POLAROID ONE 600 and several packs of PX 680 Color Shade film I took to the road.”

2011 NESOP Grad Katie Kaizer Published in N Magazine, June

2011 NESOP alum Katie Kaizer recently had her photos published in two articles appearing in N Magazine’s June 2012 Issue, Nantucket, MA.

“Katie spent the month of March in Uganda, volunteering her photography to small organizations that are dramatically changing the lives of women and children who have been devastated by decades of violence, disease, and poverty. “I was trying to give these women a platform, a way to tell their story… they were so happy,” she says, holding back tears.”

“I chose to work with the Epiphany School because I have been very moved by their work with kids in the Boston area. Their efforts are tireless. Their board and their teachers are unrivaled. They have work to do and they do it. These kids come from difficult circumstances and almost all have recently witnessed violence. I’m so proud of the Take 5 kids. They opened themselves up to me through their lenses. They became more self-aware through journal writing and photography exercises on self-expression. And in the process it was these kids who taught me a lot.” – Brenda Bancel
