Richard Misrach is a great example of how an artist can be created from events. Misrach attended college not to study art or photography, but rather to study philosophy and math. Being at a university with such an active student body made him want to capture the emotions he saw. This experience caused him to alter his career path and learn about photography, and we in the art wold are forever greatful for that!
