"Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution."
- Ansel Adams
#Edusnap Photography Project
The Cape Town Museum of Childhood and Orms Cape Town School of Photography have collaborated to present a smartphone photography project that targets high school learners in Cape Town. The aim of #EduSnap is to celebrate childhood, and specifically education as a significant stage of childhood, by giving high school students in Cape Town the opportunity to share their experiences of their education with each other and acquire valuable new skills.
Five high school students in grades 8 – 11 from Rhodes High School, Rylands High School, Alexander Sinton High School and Belgravia High School have come on board as participants of #EduSnap. The project comprises four photography
workshops presented by Lauren Theunissen, a lecturer at the Orms Cape Town School of Photography. In these interactive workshops, participants are taught about smartphone photography as they capture their educational experiences, using their mobile phone cameras.
On the 19 October 2018 the Cape Town Museum of Childhood will host an #EduSnap exhibition of the photographs taken during the course of this project.
