Teen Event: Focus on Photography

Old photos are often unusual, sometimes creepy, and pretty much always fascinating, and they can provide inspirations for the photos that we take today. In this program, we’ll use special collection materials in the Vershbow Special Collections Reading Room to explore photographic principles. Through examples from history, we’ll consider what makes a compelling photograph. Then, we’ll put those ideas into practice on a photo scavenger hunt throughout the Athenaeum.

All participants should bring a camera or phone with photo-taking capabilities.
