Photography Project

A couple weeks ago, Katie Hyde, a trustee, visited Sam's House while on a school trip in Nepal. Katie teaches at Duke University and directs a program called Literacy through Photography which "encourages children to explore their world as they photograph scenes from their own lives, and then to use their images as catalysts for verbal and written expression."

Katie brought several cameras and a photo printer, and turned the gang (and the house mothers) loose on a really interesting and fun project, creating their own alphabet through photos, and taking self-portraits.

Below are a few examples and you can see the full projects here and here.
