About the American photographer, Wendy EWALD (b. 1951, in Detroit)
Wendy EWALD has spent more than 40 years collaborating with children, families, and teachers all over the world. In her work, she encourages her collaborators to use cameras (as well as using the camera herself) to record themselves, their families and their communities, and to articulate their fantasies and dreams. She often has them mark or write on her own negatives, thereby challenging the concept of who actually makes an image. Beneath solo exhibitions, fe at the International Center of Photography in New York and many honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, she has also already published some photo volumes.
