This past fall welcomed three artists to the Corcoran’s gallery– Enoc Perez, Taryn Simon, and Ivan Sigal. Ivan is an incredibly talented photographer and executive director at Global Voices— he also happens to be one of the beloved teachers of the New Media Photojournalism program here at the Corcoran. In honor of these artists exhibitions the Corcoran held an opening event for them which was attended by some of D.C. finest. A few of Ivan’s lucky students scored their names on the event list and got to spend the night with artists and guests.
I (also a new media photojournalism student) was there photographing the night on behalf of the Corcoran. It was a fantastic experience because I was able to meet so many interesting people who were also genuinely interested in my experience as a student.
