Photography Birthday Party Project at Photofusion

Last week at Photofusion Lydia Goldblatt, a photofusion member held a photography project in conjunction with Organized Youth. This project is all about birthdays and how they’ve changed through generations. 7 young people teamed up with 7 elders throughout the course of the project. The aim of the project was to share stories using our own family photographs, and then draw on the stories and photos to create new photo shoots based around the theme of the birthday party. As well as the main photo shoots, during each session we shot a series of pictures documenting the process. The project focused on sharing stories and experiences and finding similarities within these.

Watch below a video of stills from the work they produced..

The group have created a tumblr website for everyone to see how the project developed over the week. You can take a look here:
