I made it over to the Photographic Resource Center in Boston last night to see the current exhibit, “What I want to say is…” This exhibition features the work of five middle school children from Epiphany School in Dorchester who participated in Take 5’s inaugural program in photography. Brenda Bancel, the president of Take5 Foundation, worked with the 5 young students and taught each them about photography and how to work with the camera. Brenda is a recent graduate of the New England School of Photography and owner of Brenda Bancel Photography, She has utilized her photography skills and years in advertising to help the students explore their worlds and express themselves through photography.
Each of the students had some exceptional photographs. They seemed to break all the conventional rules of photography, which was refreshing. Through the process, the students opened up to Brenda and expressed in words and photographs, their very personal experiences.
Digital Silver Imaging is honored to work with Take5 and the students to help with the printing, mounting, and framing of this exhibition. The show is up through Saturday, May 26th at the Photographic Resource Center 832 Commonwealth Ave Boston, MA 617-975-0600
