Synopsis

Synopsis

Written for parents and teachers, I Wanna Take Me a Picture is an accessible and practical guide to getting children involved in photography. Through a series of lessons-from self-portraiture to representing their dreams-it teaches everything a beginner needs to know: how to compose a picture, set up a darkroom, and develop film.

Praise

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
