Charter High School for Architecture + Design (B)

Spring 2018
Classroom Teacher: Chris Sweeney
Teaching-Artist: Alexandra Snowden

In response to By the Book Vol. 2: New Photography, students at the Charter High School for Architecture + Design focused intently on honing their photography skills during photo walks around their neighborhood. Each student took photographs of a specific subject, such as texture, light or reflection, and then made a hand-bound book to display their images. Students also crafted zines that combined text and imagery to convey an idea to viewers. Many students focused their zine on political or social messages, and some students incorporated humor or an emphasis on their personal interests, such as sports. Students created multiple copies of their zines to distribute amongst their peers.
