Compiled by Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas, Eyes Open is a sourcebook of photography ideas for kids―to engage with the world through the camera.
Twenty-three enticing projects help inspire a process of discovery and new ways of telling stories and animating ideas. Eyes Open features photographs by young people from around the globe, as well as work by professional artists that demonstrates how a simple idea can be expanded. Playful and meaningful, this book is for young would-be photographers and those interested in expressing themselves creatively.
