Anna Newell + Rocky Mountain Mutual Housing Association

“I am I”
August 10 – September 24, 2004

Anna Newell worked with a group of girls from the Rocky Mountain Mutual Housing Association, Garden Court and Heritage Estates and !BLAM. The focus of her workshops was exploring “Visual Literacy” through photography and writing. The girls learned how to photograph their community with digital cameras and created personal artist books with their images. The young artists incorporated writing onto selected photographs for the exhibition. Anna photographed each girl for a large-scale 3×4 portrait that each girl personalized as individual artworks by thinking about their identity and expressing their thoughts through writing words directly onto the stunning portraits.
