ow can photography illuminate the people, places, and occupations that make a significant impact on our lives? Children will take inspiration from LaToya Ruby Frazier and Rosângela Rennó, who use photography to capture narratives of people in roles that are traditionally overlooked, and Esiri Erheriene-Essi, who uses photographic references to create paintings of memories at home and in the company of loved ones. After examining the work of these artists, children will paint or draw their own portrayals of life in their communities, including the caretakers, teachers, and bus drivers that support us everyday.
