Over the course of the month, each student made a book of their photography (17 in all). Every week, we worked on a different genre of photography.
- Week 1 was for narrative and story-telling
- Week 2 was for still-life and abstraction
- Week 3 was for portraiture and self-portraits
- Week 4 was for book construction.
Each book ended up featuring between 8-12 photographs and one or two pages for their writing. During showcase (yesterday) we had a display table set up outside the auditorium for students, parents, and staff to check out the work! I attached a couple pictures to show what the display looked like. To see the rest of the photos, go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/tapsummerphoto.
