In 2013, four schools took part in a project with Ben Uri Gallery.
The project was called ’10 Days Photography Project’.
During the project pupils were asked to take 10 photographs, over the course of 10 days that they felt represented their lives and the lives of their families and communities. These photographs are portraits.
Even though the photos may not feature a single image of the actual pupil that took them, by looking at the 10 images that the pupils have selected we can begin to learn something about that person.
Perhaps you could ask your pupils to take the 10 Days challenge! What would your pupils choose to photograph and why?
Can you print the photos and create a mini exhibition in the classroom?
