Kuumba’s First Photo Exhibition

On May 30, 2013, the students of the Kuumba Arts  held their first photography exhibit at the Ensley Recreation Center in Ensley, Alabama.  The exhibit drew a crowd of close to 75 people which included the students’ families, teachers and other community members. This event was very exciting not only for the Kuumba staff, but also for the students. The event was such a success that two of the student artists were interviewed by the Birmingham Times Newspaper.  The student artists, all young Black boys ranging in ages from 8-12 years old took photographs of places in their communities with a Canon Powershot A2300, they were given very little direction and the results were breath taking.

By encouraging the students to see places and objects that are a part of their daily lives in new, creative ways we hope to inspire them to also see their lives and the lives of others with a new lens.  Below are some of the photographs from the exhibition.
