The Way I See” is a selection of photographs by Syracuse City School students in response to the “street photography” of Helen Levitt and other contemporary photographers. Working in collaboration with Syracuse University’s Photography and Literacy Project (PAL Project), students from Edward Smith School, South West Community Center and Institute of Technology at Central were given cameras for an eight-week period and asked to document their world. Meeting with the SU mentors’ weekly, students would view and discuss the work of Levitt and contemporary photographers, edit their photographs and discuss some of the elements of picture making, such as: focus, framing, time, composition, and point of view. More importantly, the students were made aware that the camera can be a tool to tell a story and give a voice—a voice that deserves to be heard.
