Kids with Cameras

For the last two weeks I have been teaching a workshop at the Juvenile Court here in Flagstaff. The kids were given cheap point-and-shoot 35mm cameras and sent out into the world. Unfortunately the last day when we were finally able to see the images the kids had shot, only three were able to make it to class…Here are some of the images they took, I feel like they have great vision, creativity and are generally enjoyable to look at. I tried to get them to know that their perspectives are valuable, I imagine that it can’t be easy to be a very young person in a system/program like this, I frankly doubt they get much positive reinforcement, hopefully publishing some of their images helps…
