The Young Photographers Alliance Mentoring Program Asks How To Answer Adversity
The Young Photographers Alliance, an educational foundation committed to the advancement and support of emerging photographers, offers several programs for connecting students and recent graduates with established photographers. Jeff, along with fellow emerging photographers Elizabeth Sarah Barr and Yasmin Alishav, were accepted into the Alliance's Mentoring Program. They will be under the wing of Edie Tobias--a career photographer, influential in the stock photography industry. Beginning this month, they will embark on an exploration of this year's "Answering Adversity" theme, each putting together a narrative photo essay within the two-month session.
