Interview with Koci Hernandez in ASMP

The American Society of Media Photographers featured Koci Hernandez in "Questions with an Educator." Koci discussed with the ASMP his California Youth Prison Systems Project, explained what it took to publish his recent book, and shared his favorite parts about teaching at UC Berkley.

Being part of their projects and being part of their journalistic foundation is really exciting to me.

Being in that environment and around these people is absolutely stunning, amazing and jaw-dropping every day.
