July 2018: Edgehill Brighter Days Photography Workshop

In July 2018, I had the pleasure of working with a group of children from the Edgehill community in Nashville as part of the Edgehill Brighter Days summer program. Local photographer and Brighter Days alumni, DeShawn Lewis, brought together a group of local photographers to teach the kids the basics of photography. We began with a classroom session where we talked about our roles and showed examples of our work. Then, we gave them disposable cameras and guided them around the neighborhood to document what they saw. It was such a rewarding experience seeing them be so excited to be behind the camera, and we hope to have an art show showcasing their work soon.
