A selection of the best neighborhood photos from a Garfield High School photography class are on display at Douglass-Truth Library through the end of March. Students were assigned the task of documenting the Central District, and the results are pretty stunning.
I stopped by the library to check the exhibit out. The photos are on top of the bookshelves on the main floor, and each photo has a short paragraph from the taker explaining their process.The students bring fresh perspective to the neighborhood, and many of the photos are stunning.
The photography project was funded by a $10,000 Qwest Foundation Teachers and Technology grant sought by photography teacher Corey Louviere and Garfield Librarian Janet Woodward. You can check out more of the photos online at the class Flickr pool. You can also view a PDF slide show about the project.
