From the Preface by Elizabeth Opalenik:
Each teacher was asked to tell a workshop story that influenced or inspired them personally—involving colleagues, peers, or students—whether funny, poignant, profound, or sad. These authentic stories are universal, and in them we find ourselves. More broadly, the goal of this book is not only to preserve memorable workshop experiences, but also to share the varied and unique images of the photographers who contributed their talents and expertise to these institutions.
I am honored and humbled by how the connections and threads of workshops were spun to create a community that shared, laughed and learned together. People were hungry for knowledge in the early days of workshops. There may have been masters and students, but there were no divides when it came to sharing.
“Teaching at The Workshops has been like training wheels for my current full-time professorship. Jay Maisel told me that after a workshop he ‘feels like a lemon that’s been sucked dry by a 900-pound gorilla... It was an invaluable incubator for ideas and an intense crucible for crafting them.” - Gregory Heisler
