Toronto PD - Day Two OCAD U

This afternoon we headed down to OCAD U to talk to Faculty and Staff of the Design and the Photography Programs.  It was great to connect to Faculty from other Photo and Imaging Programs and discuss the state of the photo and education industries.

Besides talking shop we got a tour of the Photography Facilities by Peter Sramek the Photography Chair. One of the highlights of the tour was seeing the INTAC show by the OCAD U Photography Students and Students from TAMK in Tampere, Finland and Chung-Ang U in Seoul S. Korea.

The OCAD U Photography Students created works in collaboration with TAMK and Chung-Aug U Students.  The work is great and talking with the Students about their collaborative experience was very interesting.   Below is a clip of Professor Denine Wrixon talking to OCAD U student Shanon Fujioka about her collaborative work You and I Are.

We would like to thank the Faulty and Staff Peter, Guy, Deanne, Beth and Gayle for taking the time to talk with us and for showing us around.  Also thanks to Darien in the Photo Cage for the Hasselblad hook up.
