Taking a Journey with Photography



Fifteen lucky high school Crusaders got to fine-tune their photography skills over April vacation week with RISD’s Project Open Door. In a workshop called Photographic Imaging: An Artistic and Scientific Journey, they built pinhole cameras, transformed a room into a camera obscura, and created light drawings and digital portraits. They spent one afternoon combing downtown Providence for cityscapes as raw material for Photoshop manipulation. They even sampled each other’s faces to make composite portraits.

Huge thanks to our Project Open Door instructors Scott Lapham and Jonathan Chamberlain for their guidance during a fun and creative week. And many thanks to Nick Alves ’11 for taking the photos that appear in this story. See below for a few samples of student work!
