Through Our Eyes – A Children’s Photography Project

THROUGH OUR EYES
A CHILDREN’S PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT
-In the Project Room-
Taught and co-ordinated by Christine Germano.
The Children of Alert Bay School, British Columbia discovered photography and thought about what Alert Bay meant to them; the children took photographs, developed their own film and wrote accompanying text. Ensuring that the student’s entire vision was seen. The outcome is a direct reflection of Alert Bay through the eyes of these children. Germano states this is one of the purest forms of documentation. It comes from a personal childhood experience and is told in their words, as they see it through youthful eyes. The stories and photos are an expression of the truth and yet told gently through a child’s heart and eyes.
