Photojournalism students capture essence of Harris County

Sixteen photojournalism students from Grady College captured the personality of Harris County, Georgia, during the Woodall Weekend Workshop February 27 & 28, 2016.

The result of the workshop is a collection of visual storytelling projects by each of Mark Johnson’s advanced photojournalism students.  The students are advised through the weekend by Johnson, a senior lecturer at Grady College, and eight professional photographers who provide feedback.

This is the eleventh year the workshops have taken place. Last spring, the workshop took place in Stephens County, Georgia, and in Fall 2015, students from the advanced photojournalism class traveled to the Georgia National Fair in Perry, Georgia.

The Woodall Weekend Workshop has been sponsored since Spring 2015 by Henry (AJB ’75) & Lynda Woodall.

The best images from each student can be viewed below:

In addition to print images, each student is also required to produce a multi-media presentation with audio.

All of the multi-media presentations were shared online through the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, and can be viewed below:
