Teaching at Oslo University College

In January I was invited to teach at the Photojournalism bachelor course at Oslo University College. The students were preparing to leave for Myanmar for a nine weeks stay there. First they will do a workshop and then produce individual projects. During our classes the main focus was the process of working with personal projects, and to help the students developing their ideas for Myanmar. In April I will be back to assist in the editing process. The work of all students will be published as an exhibition, a book and on a website in the spring.
