Catherine Rive    The Language of Photography and Film          Instagram@weareherephotos

 

As an artist working in Early Years Education I have discovered through the use of many materials, skills and techniques that digital photography has become increasingly relevant,  significant and valued as a tool for working creatively with young children.  Young children have a unique view of the world. Photography enables young children to explore how they perceive the world and to communicate their ideas in a meaningful way. Their photography is fascinating and full of surprises. 

 

Children participating in the photography project  are able to share how they see the world it makes their ideas visible. Photography enables children to explore and communicate their ideas about the world, their interests, feelings and fascinations, questions about the world, preoccupations and more. Through the children’s photographs we get to see the world through their eyes. In this time of lockdown and isolation to make connections I have set up a virtual exhibition of the children’s photographs @weareherephotos on Instagram.

 

To participate in this project families can;
Use a phone, tablet or camera and encourage their child to take aseries of photographs of the things they like, or like to do, a favourite place, an object or…
Please ask the children ‘What can you tell me about yourphotographs? Or what can you see? Or to describe the photographand to choose the one they like most.

 

Please email your child’s favourite photographs that they have taken with if possible a title, their age and name to weareherephotos@gmail.com with permission to share the images on
