With coffee and love

The first intense week of the fall semester has come to an end. Some students have already done their first stories, others have discussed visual strategies and C41TLYN, our developing machine, has been busy.


Monday, even more students will begin their classes with us. Speaking of classes. In the class room one day I found this decoration made of coffee:
