"Kids these days..."
"All they want to do is watch TV and play video games..."
Sound familiar? Today's generation of youth gets a bad rap. Often described in the media as "entitled", "lazy", "selfish", it's easy to get the impression that today's tweens and teens will handily send our world to the brink of destruction. While that may be true for some, I see something else when I look at today's youth.
I see teens who spent their "flood days" off school not vegging in front of the TV, but ripping out wet drywall and carpets from flooded neighbors' homes. Who have birthday parties at an animal shelter and ask guests to bring pet food and blankets instead of gifts. Who take music and voice lessons and go on to become worship leaders in their churches during middle and high school. Why don't we hear THOSE stories?
Enter the "Who I Am" tween/teen photography project
I am continuing the "Who I Am" project to tell these stories that deserve to be told, while also giving an all-important shot of self-confidence that kids will receive by having an AMAZING photograph.
Who I'm looking for
I'm looking for models for this photography project, ages 10-15. We will ask the model and parents a few questions, then combine the text and photographs to create one impactful piece of art. Many of the stories will also be collected in a hardback coffee table book that will be produced in the fall of 2016 and ready for holiday gift giving.
Why "Who I Am"?
Let's face it...these years are rough. Body changes, acne, mean girls (need I say more?), and increasing academic and athletic pressure are a lot for kids to handle. Do I even need to mention the devastating effects of social media that are experienced by way too many kids? The "Who I Am" project will celebrate those special characteristics that make your child one-of-a-kind, and will tell the story of who she is - not just what she does. Imagine the impact that a single beautiful image can make for your tween or teen's self-image.
