THROUGH YOUR EYES

What do you see? What story can you tell? A picture is worth a thousand words, the saying goes. During this series, we will explore the stories in pictures. Using viewfinders as a story-telling tool, our young photographers will “capture” what they see throughout the museum, and re-create these stories, making exciting moving images!
