Community Project: Arundel Court Junior School after school club

This venture was conceived of at the end of a personal photographic based project, which developed in Landport Community Garden.

The main objectives when working with the children, was to encourage them to begin to look at their surroundings in detail and to really engage with the aesthetic of the garden and beyond. I wanted them to discover things that would have ordinarily have gone unnoticed, to actively see and perceive.

The children undertook a five week course in traditional photography using 35mm film camera. Although many had never used such an out dated camera, they began to explore the visual potential that the slower and more deliberate process could achieve.
