Established nearly a decade ago, the West End School is a free, private, college preparatory elementary and middle school for young men. The Come With Me photographic exhibition is a personal expression of the young men’s experiences at the West End School. Members of the Speed Art Museum staff spent five weeks working with the middle school boys as they learned about composition, visual storytelling, and photographic techniques, a process that culminated in students using Holga cameras to document their perspectives of campus life. Once their photo project was complete, students traded the image for the word and wrote poetry to accompany their visual narratives. The results range from serious to playful, candid to reflective—and all of them as thoughtful and unique as the artists that composed them. Come with them on their journey and they’ll show you…

Join us for the opening reception Wednesday, March 11, 2015, 5:30–7:30p at Local Speed. This reception is free and open to the public.
