Photography Teacher Anne Rearick in Réunion Island
Photography teacher Anne Rearick spent her mod break as a visiting artist in La Réunion Island, a French department and island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa (between Mauritius and Madagascar). Anne was invited by a cultural organization to speak to over 700 students at 14 high schools and the university about her photographic work.
She soaked up the sun and connected with Réunionnaisfrom March 21-30. During her time on the island, she visited and spoke at over a dozen schools, including the university. Anne spoke to over 700 students and taught a documentary workshop for adults.
Anne shared the best part of the trip was meeting the incredible students and teachers. She says, "Besides the dengue fever, torrential rain, the 9 foot shark in the lagoon where I was going to swim, and the 100 turtles that lived in a cage just outside my hotel door, it was an amazing trip!"
