Here are all the photographs that were hung last night! It was an amazing gallery opening. We had live music, finger foods, and over 150 individuals walked through the exhibition space throughout the night!
Tino Soriano, our amazing photo expert, sends along the following:
An image is worth a thousand words!!
Cheers from Spain!
After a short delay at JFK airport, we arrived in Barcelona in great spirits Wednesday evening. We dropped our bags at the hotel, took quick showers, and headed out for our first taste of Catalan food. Absolutely delicious! We had paella, as well as a smattering of tapas all evening long. By the time the dessert plate came, it was almost 11pm!
Yesterday we had a quick breakfast at our hotel, then walked across the street and picked a shady spot in Ciutadella Park and got to know each other better during our group orientation. After a couple hours of games in the park, we walked back to the hotel and listened to our National Geographic Expert Tino talk about his life and work before a picnic lunch. Then we walked to the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s unfinished symphony, and took pictures of the Eixample district on our way there. Later, we learned a bit about importing photographs, media management, and photo editing, and broke into smaller groups and discussed what aspects of photography we’re most interested in. Dinner was more Mediterranean food at a Greek Taverna just a few blocks from our residence.
Today we’re excited to be on a day trip to Figueres and Cadaques!

We’ve received word from the leaders that the group has arrived in Barcelona, Spain.
Hello! It’s Jes, Sarah-Marie, Jill, and Kate here, and we are all fired up after our weekend planning session in Putney, Vermont. We have an exciting workshop scheduled in one of the most visually-stimulating, interesting, and beautiful places on Earth! We also have the good fortune to be joined by photojournalist Tino Soriano during our entire workshop. Get excited!
We encourage you all to use the next few weeks to get familiar with your cameras and any other gear you plan to bring with you. Soon, we’ll be together in Barcelona snapping photos like professionals!
We can’t wait to meet you all!
-Jes, Sarah-Marie, Jill, and Kate
