Students in Atlantic City learn professional photography

Posted: Updated:

Some Atlantic City children spent the summer looking at their community through a camera lens.

The fourth through eighth graders spent six weeks taking a digital photography course entitled "People and Places.”

The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey’s distinguished professor of art, Wendel White, and Press of Atlantic City photographer, Edward Lea, taught the program.

Today the students unveiled their photographs in an exhibit at the Atlantic City free public library.

Their teacher says the photographs show the unique way children see the world around them.

Professor White said, “I often was surprised by the things they photographed, how they photographed them. I thought the end result was interesting, exciting, and engaging.”

Sponsors of the program include the Coalition for a Safe Community, the city of Atlantic City, the city Housing Authority and the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.
