Photography Workshop, The
Photographers tell stories. They present the dynamics of life in the big city and the rural countryside. They represent historic record, buy they can also shatter our understanding of history. Photographs preserve our memories and inspire us to become more aware. They reveal our dreams. They excite us. They clarify and mystify. The joy of photography lies in all its infinite possibilities. Each and every photograph offers the extraordinary pleasure of discovery. Viewing, discussing, and creating images is a passage to self-discovery that enhances ones self-esteem. Studying photography is a conduit to a better understanding of various cultures and different ways of seeing, believing, and thinking. Photography broadens our perception of ourselves and the world. Photography is about more than technique; it is about perception and communication. Because the power of photography lies in its ability to communicate our perceptions of the world, photography can intersect with many areas of study. Offering 17 camps at 5 locations for ages 8-11 & 12-16. Visit or call (484) 604-2004
