Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We’ve all heard this truism throughout our lives. PhotoSensitive, a prominent leader in the world of photography is now asking students to use photography to capture their idea of beauty.
The Beauty Project is an exciting exhibit that will certainly challenge social beliefs surrounding traditional beauty, while also giving students an opportunity to showcase their talent behind the lens. PhotoSensitive, together with St. Mildred’s-Lightbourn School, have joined together to host this photography exhibit which will feature work by students in the Conference of Independent Schools of Ontario (CIS). This opportunity will engage students in an authentic learning experience with real world applications and provide a vehicle to showcase their creative work.
The Beauty Project invites students to consider the true meaning of “beauty” in the world around them through black and white photography. A selection of the black and white photographs will be exhibited at Brookfield Place (formerly BCE Place), which is located in downtown Toronto.
This project is looking to encourage hundreds of students to look past the media’s standard definition of beauty. The CIS students have been given the opportunity to find and capture moments that reflect the true essence of beauty, giving participants an opportunity to consider what beauty actually means to them, and how beauty is not always something that can only be seen on the surface.
Submissions will be accepted from September 2012 through March 2013. All of the student photographs and written captions submitted to PhotoSensitive will appear in a Web Gallery during this time. All of the images will appear on the PhotoSensitive website and a selection of the images will be exhibited at Brookfield Place (formerly BCE Place), which is located in downtown Toronto.
