Last Day of Internship

The past nine weeks have flown by, and we are saying goodbye to another student intern. Min Qing Wang trekked all the way from Coney Island each day to come work at the Josephine Herrick Project, bringing her work ethic, eye for detail, and wry sense of humor with her. During her time at JHP, she had the opportunity to visit many of our programs, frame and hang exhibitions, curate images for photobooks and social media, take senior portraits at a high school, practice with exposure in Union Square Park, and support around the office. We celebrated her last day over chicken wings and milk shakes (her choice) and Min Qing shared:

“I am very grateful to have had such a project for me to learn. I have been to many places in the past two months and I have seen many people who love photography. During the internship, I learned how to put different photos together to make them more suitable, how to use cardboard as a container [for art prints] and how to communicate with others. These experiences have given me a greater interest in photography also let me work hard to be better to help others.”
