We never cease to be amazed at how many Blurbarians make books for a cause and the stories behind each are all phenomenal. Case in point, The My World Project, a book featuring the photographs of ten students from Chicago’s non-profit organization 826CHI.
Mike Hettwer (National Geographic contract photographer) taught 10 middle/high school kids how to take photographs of ‘their world’ in a period of eight weeks. That’s right, eight weeks people. 12,128 photographs later, they compiled this book to show off their newly learned skills. I have to admit, I’m pretty impressed. Check out the preview to see for yourself what an awesome eye these kids have for capturing the world around them.
You can buy the book here, or if you’re in the Chicago area, check out 826CHI’s gallery exhibition of all the photos this Thursday, September 4th from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at Elegant Mr. Gallery.
