Join Aperture for a day of family fun with photographers Alice Proujansky and Angélica Dass as they explore with participants the themes of self-portraiture and identity through two photo activities.

In Alice’s activity, participants will create their own “Little Me” with Alice! How would everything look if you were super small? How would a change in size help you notice different things? Alice will work with participants to create an action shot of themselves, print it out, attach it to a stick, and then take their “Little Me” on a photographic adventure where ordinary objects become giant!
