"Hidden Portland: kids' pix and stories online

Linda Frye Burnham / 03:23 PM
Maine teachers Fran Vita-Taylor and Susan Porter are conducting a workshop (through April 12) called "Hidden Portland: Writing and Photography" for grades 6-8. The lovely place-making project has an online portfolio of photos and writing by the children. They are worth looking at and the format worth copying. Also, an exhibition (one large-printed photo and one piece of written work each) will be on display for the month of May in the Addison Wooley Gallery in Portland's Old Port. The workshop is through an organization in Portland called "The Telling Room," whose mission is to 'privilege the act of storytelling as a vital means of expression and community building.' "

His review begins:

"It seems appropriate to greet the season by welcoming a new kid on the block, the Addison Woolley Gallery on Market Street in Portland. Its initial exhibition – "Four Photographers, Four Techniques" – portends well for its ambition to become a center for photographic inquiry."
