Abstract

I had always wanted a way to reach out to high school girls who faced the modern complexities of beauty; what is beautiful and how do we decide what is beautiful. My goal, through the teachings of photography, was to show the girls there is beauty all around us - in everyone and everything. The girls learned photographic basics as well as how to capture natural aesthetics. By encouraging their creativity and exploration of beauty, many of the girls found confidence in themselves as females and as artists, and produced beautiful photographs along the way.
