This week saw ACP dynamic duo Benjamin Stone-Herbert and Marco Bok journey up to Longreach, QLD, for the third of our school visits for the School Selfie Project in partnership with SBS. The heat was palpable but Marco got off to a flying start documenting Longreach State High School and the workshop was an enormous success, with the students’ passion for their school and photography obvious.
Taking their school surrounds as inspiration, students made images that illustrate what their school means to them, investigating and experimenting with light, shadow, framing and point of view. The wonderful results of the workshop can be viewed on Instagram via #longreachschoolselfie. Big congratulations to all students involved in making wonderful images.
Thank you to Longreach State High School for having us, and allowing us to share our passion for photography. We look forward to sharing this project with schools across Australia when SBS’ new online learning hub launches on November 16 2015.
SBS Learn is part of SBS Content Outreach agenda fostering partnerships with organisations including Government, NGOs and public institutions with the aim of increasing the impact and public value of SBS content. This is achieved through the creation of multiplatform content that that stimulates informal learning and provides more opportunity for either a mainstream or niche audience, such as schools, to engage with our content, Key SBS Outreach projects to date include: Go Back to where you came from School Packs, The Heart of Punchbowl Photographic Exhibition, First Contact Learning Resources.
