Hi Friends! Welcome to Photo Club.
For this challenge, we are going to talk about how adding text to our images can help us tell a story.
For this project, I was inspired by Wendy Ewald’s series “American Alphabets”. In the series, Wendy talks about how the first images she saw were next to letters in an alphabet book. As their alphabet images came together it became a cultural self portrait of the community of students she was teaching.
Check out the videos below to learn more and get inspired to tell your story!
