Eyes Open is aimed at children and adolescents who wish to discover or deepen their practice of photography. Thanks to 23 proposals, the curious reader, beginner or seasoned, plays with his smartphone or his camera to approach the world around him.
Beyond the collection of activities, this beautiful book is an invitation to build, to develop a personal perspective, a sensitivity. It encourages the reader to play with the image in order to learn to reach out to others, to share, to live together.
Conceived by the photographer Susan Meiselas who distills ideas and advice over the pages, this book is also the result of numerous contributions. Each of the proposals brings together images produced by students from around the world as well as the works of renowned photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Saul Leiter, Sally Mann, Alec Soth, Alex Webb …
Eyes Open follows in the footsteps of Looking To See (The Polaroid Foundation, 1975), a book published by Susan Meiselas, then a young Harvard education graduate, now out of print.
“In this book, I invite you to explore the world through photography. The camera can be a way to reach out to others while expressing how you feel.” Susan Meiselas
