Mountain Workshops in Murray, Kentucky

I just got back from The Mountain Workshops, a intense week-long workshop down in Murray, Kentucky. Every year since 1976, Western Kentucky University’s photojournalism department has selected one town in Kentucky and created a workshop that documented a week in it’s life as a means of training participants to be better photojournalists. Though not a photojournalist myself, I attended the Mountain Workshops to learn from and be inspired by some of the top photojournalists in the country. 

Today I discovered that our work attracted some national attention. A number of the best images from the workshop were displayed on the front page of MSNBC.com.
