Located in Portland, Maine, the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies offers a 15-week immersion program for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in documentary writing, photography, or radio.
This blog is an update of current Salt students insights and musings.


People, people who need people . . .

Through Salt, I have found that people are much more open than I am.
People will tell you anything! - and it's amazing and very encouraging.
In only a few minutes, they will tear open every storage box that contains bits and pieces of their lives, pick out object after object, and teach you all about themselves one story at a time.
You will come away with more tragedies and comedies than you know what to do with, and then focusing someone's story into one measely box becomes the real problem.
But it will teach you, sure as hell.
