Alice Proujansky is Aperture Foundation s coordinator of community partnerships. She holds a BFA from the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, and has taught photography and led professional development coaching sessions for educators at Urban Arts Partnership, the Red Hook Community Justice Center, and the New York City Department of Education. A practicing photojournalist covering working motherhood and birth, her work has been published in the New York Times, New York, the Guardian, the New Republic, and others.
Proujansky touches on technical aspects of photography, such as composition and lighting (and an opening section offers some loose photography rules including turn off the flash), but her emphasis is generally on playful exploration, building readers confidence behind the camera through an array of creative projects and ideas. "Publishers Weekly" I love that this book can force kids to use their imagination, think outside-of-the-box and in some cases actually spend time outdoors. "Here Wee Read" Trust me, this one will get kids thinking creatively and having fun, just in time for summer. "Literary Hoots" Highly recommended for children who love photography and creative thinkers. "Here Wee Read" "
