Here + There: Exploring Multi-layered Identity through Photography

Collaboration with Rebecca Sprague at Church World Service and Daniel Robinson at the Institute for Creative Inquiry (JMU)

Here + There was an exhibition of photographic compositions created by high school students that gave visual form to their lived experience as refugees. The work stemmed from a photography-focused community arts workshop held at James Madison University in May & June 2021 that I taught. As part of the workshop, each student created a composite of two different photographs that represented the multi-layered reality of the artist’s personal identity.
