Publisher Description

A practical programme for increasing the self-esteem and nurturing the creativity of children. For more than 30 years, Wendy Ewald has worked with children around the world, using photography to enable them to express what they think and feel, even on difficult subjects like their dreams and racial stereotypes. Written especially for parents and teachers, this volume explores how to engage children both visually and verbally.

Author Biography

She lives with her husband and son in the Hudson Valley, New York.

Alexandra Lightfoot received her Ed.D. from Harvard University in 1998.

Review

Ewald's project is wonderful because it lets kids speak for themselves; instead of being passive subjects for the lens, they eagerly harness it to the engine of their imaginations. --Andy Grundberg, The New York Times "What's striking about Ewald's work is not just the effect she has on her students but the results they achieve together." --Francine Prose, O: The Oprah Magazine

"Young people know joy, sorrow, and loss. By looking at their photographs and talking about making them, they begin to realize that their lives have importance. This book is needed!" --Deborah Willis, author of Reflections in Black

"A treasure of photos taken by the author and her pupils, plus stirring testimonies from children around the globe who faced tragedy through the lens of a camera." --City Limits
