Hand a child a camera and you never know what will happen. You will get lots of blurry photographs and many photographs of feet. You will get close ups of objects you never knew were interesting. You will get unusual angles, dramatic compositions, lots of colour and lots of fun.
The fantastic photographs included here were taken in Summer term of 2015 by a group of young photographers at Thomas Fairchild Community School in Hackney, aged 5-9. The pupils used digital compact cameras and a sense of adventure. The main aim of these workshops, facilitated by Angela Stapleford Photography & Community, was for children to have fun with cameras, and the resulting photographs also revealed the pupils’ incredible talent and creativity.
