New York Folklore

What an educational time we had with Guha Shankar at the NYF/NYSCA Photography Workshop in Schenectady! During this hands-on workshop, we visited Armando & Sons Ironworks, Electric City Barn, and Perreca's Bakery - Italian Bread, Pastries, Soups & Cupcakes! to practice DSLR photography in an ethnographic fieldwork setting. Such a good time of learning!

The photography workshop was sponsored by NYSCA Folk Arts through its Mentoring and Professional Development Program.

I had no idea this even was scheduled! Was it open to the public? If yes... Anything else coming up?
