Back in the 1980s, I went to art school, and I along with all of the other illustration majors were required to take a course in photography. We had to shoot the photos as well as process the negatives and make the prints. I don’t recall what the particulars of the class assignments were although I can tell from looking at the negatives which were the assignments and which ones were shot just to finish off a roll. The shots to finish the roll are a lot more interesting.
While my fellow students mostly resided and shot their photographs in Philadelphia, I lived and did most of my shooting in and around Westville, NJ. Above is the shuttered Westville School. I think I went here briefly when I was attending either kindergarten or grade school.
