"I Needed Paris" with Michael Cheers

“I Needed Paris” Launch Event/Press Release (FSCC Ellis Fine Arts Center/Auditorium, FREE) - With Michael Cheers, Associate Professor of Photojournalism, School of Journalism and Mass Communications, San Jose State University. This will be the launch event for the immersive educational experience that will take a group of diverse American and Parisian student photographers through Paris, traversing the same streets and neighborhoods as Gordon Parks. These students will reimagine Gordon’s spirit as a fashion photographer while using the same type of camera Gordon used - twin lens reflex film cameras. This project will showcase the diverse hues of fashion models. Student participants will style and photograph their models at some of the same locations chosen by Parks.
