"The Kiss," by Chentel Bangloy, was produced under Farrington High School's photography program.
Storytelling from the heart
FARRINGTON High School Fine Arts teachers Ruth Dunham and Daphine Goodwin encourage their photography students to express opinions and communicate their perspectives through the lens of the camera. For many students the school's photography class is their first experience at taking pictures.
But you wouldn't guess that, given the artful experimentation and golden moments presented on this page. Students documented everything from a baby's arrival in the world to a neon, digitized close-up of a friend's face.
Three weeks before the end of each semester, Farrington's photography department holds an exhibition at the school library that includes the work of every student in the program. The next show will run Nov. 27 to Dec. 15. The public is welcome.
"Our students photograph reality as they see it," Dunham and Goodwin write. "Teenagers become profound storytellers through these colorful and powerful images."
Leslie Agustin's "Wait." Farrington High will showcase student work in the school library Nov. 27 to Dec. 15.
