On Friday, our Spring students met visiting artist Mercedes Jelinek, a young photographer who is successfully supporting herself as an artist.

Her arresting images, her working process, her interesting path from commercial work to fine-art photography, and her insights into the hustle and mental fortitude necessary to make a living in art held our students enthralled during her talk. Later, she visited Ansley West's photography class, reviewed their images, and did a little work in our darkroom. Thank you for visiting, Mercedes, and sharing your energy, enthusiasm, and love of photography with us!
