Photographing Teaching Artists at Work: A Photo Essay and Commentary
Talner, Lee
Teaching Artist Journal, v8 n1 p16-24 2010
Like so many other doctors, the author loves the arts deeply. Playing a musical instrument and making photographs have been joyful pursuits throughout his schooling, training, and subsequent forty-five-year career as a medical school professor and practitioner of diagnostic radiology. Despite stretches when his healing art pushed aside his visual and performing arts, the latter were never far away. The past decade of phased retirement allowed him to immerse himself in the arts with intensified passion. For the past eight years, the author has photographed interactions between teaching artists (TAs) and schoolchildren as part of an ambitious arts education/outreach program of the University of Washington World Series of Performing Arts (UWWS). The UWWS is a nonprofit presenting organization that each year offers performances by international artists in dance, chamber music, piano recital, and world music. In this article, the author explores the visual dimension of the relationship between TAs and their students.
