A Suite, From Sixteen

“I have always dreamed about being a star.”

Here is a marvelous project out of Bellaire High School, in Ohio: pictures made mostly in a documentary style with a touch of PostSecret in the captions. It’s “The All-American Town.”

 

Read about the photographers and their mentors: https://www.washingtonpost.com/photography/2019/07/23/although-only-high-school-these-photographers-have-crafted-stunning-account-their-lives-appalachian-ohio/?utm_term=.a85ec2a78baf

“I have learned to be strong when there is no other option.”

There was a physical publication; watch this space for another run of the zine: https://oionline.z2systems.com/np/clients/oionline/product.jsp?product=69&

“If I could go back in time, I would tell myself that things will get better.”

“I keep to myself but love people through difficult times.”

 Identify for yourself each piece on display.

Which piece(s) hold the wall best from a distance? Which is/are most rewarding upon close inspection?

 Which is a picture you would do differently; how? (This is not meant to be “advice” to the maker.)

 Which picture makes logical or surprising use of the space within the frame?

 Think of something you can say about your own pictures that will help the rest of us to appreciate them, or to understand them better.

Let’s Get Negative

Are you on my one of my rosters? I’ll pop for 11×14 or 16×20 paper if you make a pinhole camera big enough to use it.
