When A Picture Can Tell A Thousand Words

On a beautiful sunny autumn day in the April school holidays a group of inspiring teenagers, along with two Satellite leaders came together to capture/talk about/observe and connect with each other and life around us.

Presented with a photography scavenger hunt we calculated that we explored a simple 1km radius around Brunswick, but realised that within that circle there were seven really unique ways of seeing/sharing the spaces/paths we walked.

The scavenger challenge was to take photographs that represented:
̈ Mood or Emotion
̈ Your Favourite Colour
̈ Close-up
̈ Patterns or Texture
̈ Happiness
̈ Words That Speak To You
̈ Something Old
̈ Where You Stand
̈ Looking Up
̈ Ordinary Beauty
̈ Movement
̈ Shadow
̈ Your Reflection In An Unexpected Place
̈ Silence
̈ Nature
̈ From A Different Angle
̈ Your Personality
̈ Connection

We picked a few faves each and played with some editing tools to create images that we felt best spoke the feeling/thought/idea behind them. Everyone had such original styles and we finished the day with a mini-exhibition to share thoughts around how images work well together and how they told their own stories. It was a beautiful, interactive, relaxed day and the whole group agreed that we would all love to meet again to build on a group exhibition 🙂

Thank you to the wonderful young people who gave up a day of their holidays to be creatively brave and adventurous, to Jodie for being such a great help and presence and to Rita who helped get us beautiful new ipads to use as the lens through which to ask ‘do you see what I see?’
