Adam Lutwin: It’s What We Do
For the past three years, I have helped create the Photo and Literacy (PAL) Project in conjunction with Syracuse University. SU’s Visual and Performing Arts Photography Professor Steven Mahan and I have created a semester-long project where students are given access to digital cameras, journals and writing assignments, and create projects that are based in self-expression.
At the end of the semester, student work is displayed in the Link Gallery in downtown Syracuse. There is a public reception that students attend and read from their journals. We have attracted much publicity from the chancellor of Syracuse University and documentary filmmakers. I am including a link to the article written in the Syracuse University Magazine from last fall that also includes a video. We have big plans for the upcoming semester!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Enjoy!
