Really Seeing Children Through Photos
September 6, 2017
Honor is like a steep island without a shore: one cannot return once one is outside.
-Nicolas Boileau in Satires

"With digital technology comes an abundance of opportunity to take photos. For a while, I was taking so many photos I didn’t know what to do with them until I decided to use photos to tell stories of children and their work," writes Deb Curtis in Really Seeing Children. "While contemplating which photos to use for the stories, I discovered that if I studied them carefully, I could learn so much more about children's ideas and points of view.

"I've since been re-focusing the photos to highlight aspects I want to see more clearly. I crop the photos by cutting out the background, and then enlarge the elements I want to emphasize...When you examine these elements, you can clearly see the intelligence, skill, and serious intent children bring to their work."

Really Seeing Children

Educators have the opportunity to slow down, observe, delight, and practice really seeing children every day. In her new book, Really Seeing Children, Deb Curtis offers a wealth of ideas to help teachers and parents see with fresh eyes.
