Being here was an amazing and rare cultural experience. I had such a great time, it was a lot of fun, plus I felt completely safe the entire time, says Ellie Blocker from Atlanta, Georgia, who attended summer 2012 Oaxaca Photography Workshop: Market Towns and Artisan Villages and selected the theme Women of Oaxaca, Traditions and Children for her best of week final presentation. Ellie shoots primarily in black and white film and develops her own work. She carried both a film and digital camera with her this week to capture the adventure, plus she packed a Polaroid for her experimental photography.
