City Notebook: A class Instagram walk on 13th Ave


My students in JPC 201 the class I teach at UAA are using Fairview as a beat this semester. Last week, after a lecture by photographer Ash Adams, they used Instagram and their iPhones to document 13th Avenue between Carrs-Safeway on Gambell and New Sagaya City Market (with some side trips). Their assignment was to make images that have a sense of place and personality. Here are some of their images:
