I've told the story. The cards are for sale here. This post is for the kids, those wonderful, profoundly sensitive artists who took single-use film cameras and captured their hopes for America.
Local businesses underwrote the project, the school provided the budding photo-journalists, and a project was born. Linda Solomon and her fabulous jewelry brought camera crews in her wake; the photographers were happy to wear their clip on microphones and look at the interviewer while the cameras recorded their words.
"I'm going to be on Channel 13 at 10 o'clock, Mom!!!!!!!"
I'm telling you, denizens, it doesn't get any better than this.
The artists were stylin'
and a little bit too hot, what with wanting to wear all the cool new t-shirts
which were being thrown their way
There wasn't much speechifying, but what there was was listened to attentively.
These are very well behaved students and families.
But mostly it was about the pictures. With no training beyond the basics from Linda, the kids filled the frames with their hopes and dreams. Take a look:
