[teacherartexchange] The New Orleans Kid Camera Project

Dear Photo Teachers,

Here is a site that might interest you.

6. The New Orleans Kid Camera Project [iTunes]

What happens when a group of energetic young people offer cameras to a group
of even younger people in New Orleans? As it turns out, quite a bit, and the
proof is in the photographs on this site. The New Orleans Kid Camera Project
was created in order to allow "children from flooded neighborhoods to
explore their environment and express themselves, their stories and feelings
with their friends." The goals of the project are quite ambitious, as its
leaders are bringing together an interest in the power of community
development and art therapy into the mix as they offer these young people
the opportunity to document their community through a variety of endeavors.
Through weekly meetings, young people and group leaders get the opportunity
to learn a host of skills and also share their photographs. As mentioned
previously, interested parties can take a look at their group blogs to learn
more about their progress, and also check out some of their photo galleries,
which are organized by ward. The photographs are quite stark and honest, and
include images of a small child looking happily towards the camera,
accompanied by the caption "The girl who loves to pose". .....[KMG]
