FotoFika is hosted by SPE. Last week we invited Rebekah Modrak –  artist, author of Reframing Photography and a professor at the University of Michigan (go Blue) to talk about her assignment Windows Serenade among other things. We also went over the FotoFika site and some of the questions posted last week specifically in relation to teaching darkroom classes.  All of those teaching visual art/photography or related subjects are welcome and you do not have to be an SPE member to attend. Please help pass this on to people who may not be on Facebook.

FotoFika #1 – 3/18/20

Here is an audio recording of the first FotoFika with Betsy Schneider and John Freyer, hosted by Anne Massoni and the Society for Photographic Education.  Due to privacy concerns the video version of the talk is only available to members of SPE.  But all future FotoFika conversations will be available on video as well.  We will inform all participants that we are recording video for distribution.  You should be able to follow along on the this site and see Betsy’s assignment ideas here.
