Teaching at the University of Liberia

Photo Class

 

From 2007-2009 I had been helping out at the University of Liberia and teaching the Photojournalism class. Remembering back to when I was in college in Vancouver with computer labs, fully equipt studios , darkrooms and a variety of camera equipment to experiment with, textbooks, desks… I couldn’t help but think how lucky some of us are. In the photo above we didn’t even have a classroom, so the three hour lecture was done outside. When we did get a classroom, I was amazed when students were carrying their desks all day from class to class with them as there was not enough to go round and they would not be guaranteed otherwise a seat in their next lecture.
