I'm now teaching and running the Alexia Foundation Grants full time

This summer, I accepted the Alexia Tsairis Chair for Documentary Photography at S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

It’s an exciting opportunity to teach at a great school, work with the Alexia Foundation and oversee the grant competition.

I am psyched.

And while I had thought I’d be able to continue to work with photographers, I’m realizing my time to do so is limited. I’ve had to say no to a lot of photographers who wanted to work with me. About the only way I can work with you now is if you are in no hurry, and even better if your timing coincides with the holiday break or summer.

Rather than turn you away, I’d recommend that you contact either Tom Kennedy or Jasmine Defoore. Working with either of them would be a rich experience.

Please do consider entering your projects in the Alexia competitions.

And a heartfelt thanks to the hundreds of people I’ve worked with the past few years.
