The third graders who worked with us in this workshop built their own pin-hole camera and also printed their own pictures in the darkroom. On day one they photographed each other using a Hassemblad camera. On day two they worked in the darkroom. I later took a portrait of each student holding their previous B&W portrait. The contrast between being photographed by a peer and being photographed by an adult is evident in many of the photos, which are fun and serious at the same time. With Dennis Letbetter, photographer.
