Detroit Schools in American Photo Magazine

American Photo detroit schools

Having never had any formal photography training, I used to spend hours poring over the photography magazines, trying to extract every last piece of information from them, in search of some elusive "secret" to becoming a successful photographer. One of the magazines that I always spent time with was American Photo and I was really pleased to be contacted by them about running some of my work from the Detroit schools.

Over the course of a few weeks, writer Eric Rudolph and I spoke a half dozen times about what brought me to Detroit and the experience of being in these schools for the single day I spent shooting this. I owe him a big thanks for making the excerpts of these conversations sound coherent and was happy about seeing my name on the cover next to one of my photographic heroes.
