My favorite teacher of all time was an after-school teacher named Mr. Greenhut. He took me and several other kids around New York City taking photographs and then showed us how to develop them in a darkroom. His teaching method was such that he took us exploring outside of the classroom. He exposed me to things like my first Indian food meal and opened my eyes to parts of the city I had never discovered. He also challenged typical notions of success and taught us that art is completely subjective.
