From late May until mid-July, I traveled through Europe putting my photojournalism skills to the test. During the first four weeks of my trip, I was under the guidance of Dennis Darling, who taught our group the ins and outs of photojournalism during our program intensive. This took place in the Czech Republic, we had nightly assignments in which we had to keep a “blog of sorts” that discussed a different aspect of Czech life. For my entries, I chose to have a nightly theme based on “the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows.” This challenged my photography skills along with my writing skills. I was able to experiment with space and people, and personally, being under the daily deadlines allowed me to become more proactive about my daily activities. Through this program, I got the chance to meet people from more countries than I have fingers on my hands, visit concentration camps, talk to Holocaust survivors and so on.
