Wissahickon Walk

After visiting the seniors at the Germantown Adult Center I took the Shutterbugs to one of my favorite places in Philadelphia, Forbidden Drive, which runs alongside the Wissahickon River in Fairmount Park. Walking along this path it is easy to forget that you are still in Philadelphia as here are no cars honking or whizzing by, just the peaceful sounds of nature.

Working with Seniors

For the past 2 months the Shutterbugs have been working on an intergenerational project with a wonderful group of seniors from the Germantown Adult Center. In this exciting project the students will document photographically the life journey of their partner senior. Their final projects will be exhibited in the Spring along with other projects from around the city.
