"Ewald's project is wonderful because it lets kids speak for themselves; instead of being passive subjects for the lens, they eagerly harness it to the engines of their imaginations." —Andy Grundberg, The New York Times
Written for parents and teachers, I Wanna Take Me a Picture is filled with anecdotes about Ewald's work that makes it an accessible and practical guide to getting children involved in photography. Striking photographs of children's work show the benefits of her program.
"Young people know joy, sorrow, and loss. By looking at their photographs and talking about making them, they begin to realize their lives have importance. This book is needed!" —Deborah Willis, author of Reflections in Black
"A treasure of photos taken by the author and her pupils, plus stirring testimonies from children around the globe who faced tragedy through the lens of a camera." —City Limits
Wendy Ewald, who lives with her husband and son in Red Hook, New York, is currently a fellow at the Center for Documentary Studies in Durham, North Carolina. Alexandra Lightfoot received her Ed.D. from Harvard University in 1998.
