Capturing the Nobility
This is an exercise in the reversal of image making. The pictures were made by the students. The goal of the project is for middle-school children take a camera and search for people, objects and subject matter that they perceive as being noble in their lives.
Undertaken in the Village Charter School in Trenton NJ, Deanne McBeath is the teacher who championed the idea with the school and was its sponsor in the class room. My engagement was to assist in helping the students to define for themselves Nobility and where they find it. Subsequently, they were loaned cameras to venture into their own environments to capture in images pictures of Nobility in their lives. Those images were brought back to the class room, shared and celebrated.
