Thank you for your interest in our multi-week assignment for high school photography students.
SHOWING (work x family) is a national cultural project that brings together professional and student photography to look at the intersection of family life and work life in the U.S. today, revealing the myriad ways households adapt, struggle, and thrive as communities of love and labor. This story could not be complete without the perspectives of the young people who live it, and we are pleased that your students will have a voice in our project.
Teachers are invited to tailor the assignment and lesson plan to their classroom—and to participate by making their own pictures. Explore the tabs below for more information, and please contact us with any questions.
