Through the Lens, an outreach program of the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, immerses high school students in the creative process of traditional and digital photography and encourages them to experiment and learn about themselves, their community and visual communication through the exciting medium of photography. And each year the program concludes with a two-month exhibition of student work.
Through the Lens also just celebrated 15 incredibly productive and creative years, has touched close to 600 participating students and boasts a collection of 1800 photographs.
Celebrating the artistry and impact of the Through the Lens program a new book, Through the Lens – Encouraging Creativity in Youth was released by the Whyte Museum on February 2, 2013.
The book includes 130 photographs and participant interviews and stories written by Wes Lafortune. An attached DVD includes the entire archive of alumni work, along with more than 1,500 photographs.
