STUDENT PHOTOGRAPHIC WORKS DISPLAYED AT LINDE CORPORATION
The retrospective, “Building Community”, featuring dozens of young area artists was held at Linde Headquarters on October 7th.
The work of over fifty Social Fabric Collective photographers was on display at the Building Community retrospective exhibit, held at Linde Corporation, 118 Armstrong Rd. Pittston, PA. Free admission, music and complimentary refreshments were provided by Linde.
The show represented the work of some 50+ high school students from twenty (20) different schools in NEPA. The images have been amassed over the past two and a half years.
“We’ve titled the show ‘Building Community’ because our work brings people together so they may learn from each other,” says Social Fabric Collective Executive Director Jamie Smith. “This is their work and it reflects their world,” says Smith. “You will often see the same subject, shot by different people from different perspectives, which shows how each of us sees the world in slightly different ways.” The show will feature 51 framed pictures, showcasing the work of the dozens of students who have participated in the program over the last 2 ½ years. In addition to the framed pictures, there were hundreds of unframed work prints which were on display.
The camera is a catalyst for discussion and discovery. Each semester, SFC students engage in an intensive series of small group workshops, creative assignments and volunteer projects which challenge them to reach both inward and outward as they examine their identity and community through photography.
Social Fabric Collective (SFC) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides professional photography equipment, education, and inspiration to high school students who are as diverse as they are dynamic.
