National College of Arts
My assignment in Islamabad and Rawalpindi is to meet with faculty and teach a photography workshop at the National College of Arts. The campus and facilities are comparable to an art school in the west. We had planned to begin the workshop the following day but had to cancel due to security surrounding elections. Benazir Bhutto, a former Prime Minister of Pakistan was assassinated in 2007 just outside of the gate to the school. Her father, Zulfiquar Ali Bhutto, the former President was sentenced to death and hanged close by in 1979.
