"This week, Kayla, Demetrius, Matt and I spent the week at the Missouri Photo Workshop in Platte City, Missouri. The three of them were participating in the workshop, I was working on my personal project. At the end of the week, to celebrate completed projects and a week of hard work, other American DMJX alumni from nearby areas came out to visit" Felix von der Osten writes in a mail.
"We thought it would be great to do a DMJX-Group picture. Being at DMJX means family ;)" he says, and of course he is right.
