Yesterday, I was looking back through some work by my previous students; and I came across this wonderful image – Mother and Daughter – by Klaus Enrique Gerdes. Klaus was in my photography class at Parsons during the summer of 2007. He and I spent time editing images for a submission to the 2007 Photographic Portrait Prize Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Of all of his images, this was my favorite. I later learned that the image was accepted for the exhibition.
