Jessica White and Andrea Lopez worked with 15 girls from Salzburg, Austria. We developed a curriculum that included Games developed originally by Augusto Boal, that lifted oppression and built trust and team work. We explored the use or photography in contemporary social media as well as portraiture to explore in depth significant women throughout history, who have become well known for diverse achievements in education, science, arts and law. We linked this understanding of photography portraiture, that has it´s historical influence from portrait painting, into practice. The girls created their own portraits with Polaroid cameras. This is a slow and careful process. We decided work with this type of film so that they could see how photography was once used. They could watch the chemical react to the light right in front of their eyes and also how they had to be careful! Very different from working with digital photography.
