The concept of “In-between” stresses on flow, shift, progression and disappearance, like the open quotation mark, putting into brackets a contained time and space dimension, allowing people to express their memories and emotions. “In-between” becomes inevitably linked to the fundamentals of photography, inducing the theme and direction of this photography education programme.
The educators of Through Our Eyes have taught at 10 secondary schools in Kowloon East. In the school workshops, our educators have taught the techniques in photography. Through lively and innovative practices, they have also inspired students to explore unusual perspectives on the most ordinary matters. The interactive teaching approach has motivated the creativity of both educators and students, and eventually fostered this exhibition. The exhibition will as well showcase the fruitful community project under the Through Our Eyes Photography Education Programme.
The exhibition features of more than 100 photographs exploring the multitude of ways that photography can be used – as an art medium, a social document, an education tool, a therapeutic process, a mirror to oneself as well as a window to the world. The exhibition is divided into three distinctive yet interrelated parts: student works, works from community-based programmes and works from professional artists.
