These photographs are recognitions, stares, explorations, appreciations, laughs, embraces, parties, prayers, and questions raised in seeing people around me. To misquote Robert Creeley, “The Body is the Plan.” There is always more to be learned.
The subjects pictured were primarily students at the Woodlawn Program (now H-B Woodlawn), Career Center, and a Gifted/Talented photo class in Arlington, VA, that drew its students from all the County’s high schools. The work was created in 1979.
The photographs were made with a Polaroid SX-70 Alpha-1 instant camera and a Montgomery Ward strobe.
