Summer Studio 2016 | Photographic Imaging

In a first for Project Open Door, 2016's Summer Studio "Photographic Imaging" was a collaboration between POD and the College Crusade of Rhode Island. Recognizing the respective institutions' shared goals for advancing teens to higher education a week-long program was co-designed that took participating teens on a exploration of the connections between art, photography and science.Photographer Scott Lapham supported by photographer Jonathan Chamberlain filled the week with creative assignments that invited the 15 teens to explore diverse ways of image making. In one such assignment, after discussing the pioneer work of engineer and photographer Harold Edgerton teens were challenged through experiments with lighting and camera shutter speed to capture the instant a balloon burst!
