In January of 2012, my dear friend (and wonderful photographer),  Kateri Likoudis  and I traveled to Jamaica, to teach a photography workshop for twelve young men at thePaul Bogle Vocational Training Institute and Trade School, in Lyssons. We were invited by our friends at The Source Farm Eco Village and Learning Center, who help to supplement the trade school’s formal training with lessons and workshops in sustainability and the arts. Not far from the school, the family that own and operate The Source Farm hosted us at their farm and educational Eco Village in rural St. Thomas.   Everyday for two weeks, Kateri and I went to the school to teach the technical functions of the Kateri Likoudis, basic art and design principles, hold classroom critiques, and take the students into the “field” to practice shooting. When not working hands onduring workshop hours, orprintingand framing the students’ work for the gallery, we spent our time exploringand photographingcolorful Jamaica with our own cameras.  For the few monthsleading up to the trip,Kateri and I created and held several fundraisers to purchase cameras for each of our students, and a quality photo printer. Later, we donated the cameras to our students at the final gallery opening held to showcase their work, and the printer was left with the school for future use. The final weeks prior to our brief trip were spent creating lesson plans and planning a course of action for what would become an incredibly inspiring, exciting, and eye opening journey for us both. I created these photographs to document our adventures inbeautiful Jamaica.
