History of the Program

The idea of using students’ own photographs to inspire autobiographical, descriptive, expository, and community-based writing projects originates in the work of photographer Wendy Ewald. Her lifelong involvement with young people, photography, and communities around the globe produced the initial spark for the Addison's Photography & Writing Program in 1996.
