Knight Internship Fellowship Recipient 2009
My internship experience at Moore allowed me to understand how businesses in the arts function and really got me involved with the Philadelphia arts scene.
Sarah Stolfa came up with the idea of the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center after completing graduate school. I learned that it takes lots of time and patience to start a business, especially a business in the arts.
Also, I met a lot of local photographers. I went to the annual Society of Photographic Educators meeting. It was great to be around so many practicing photographers and watch them come up with ideas for the convention in Philadelphia this year. Overall, it was a great experience.
