Landscape of loss. German Guatemalans. Sensational cemetery. Underwater wonderland.

When I laid my head down in my Quetzaltenango hostel I had to laugh. I was lying down in a location I did not know existed just a month prior. This city was not on my itinerary, not even on my radar. I ended up in Quetzaltenango, called “Xela,” by residents, thanks to Lonely Planet and some tourist shuttle agency fliers.

  • Towanda: An American Town Pictured

    New York | Dates: 29 Oct – 13 Nov, 2014
    During the fall of 2013, 15 students from Parsons The New School for Design collaborated with Documentary Strategies instructor, Vincent Cianni, in an effort to document the town of Towanda, PA through photography, interviews, and video. The resulting body of work, including a series of photographs by Towanda High School students, formed a portrait of a community that expands received notions of documentation, subject, and observation. The project was further developed by a team of graphic designers led by Parsons Graphic Design professor Jeanne Verdoux. The 16 designers collaborated to produce a printed poster-catalog of the project, a live website, and an overall graphic identity that complemented and broadened the scope of the work of the photography students.
