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!
Alice Proujansky is a documentary photographer and writer covering family labor: birth, work, motherhood, and identity.
She is now working on a Hard Times are Fighting Times photo book, photo essays about culturally-responsive birth work, and photography and visual literacy workshops.
Proujansky has taught photography since 2002 and was the lead curriculum writer for On Sight, Aperture’s photography and visual literacy curriculum. Her first book, Go Photo! An Activity Book for Kids was published by Aperture.
Proujansky grew up in Greenfield, MA. She graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts Department of Photography and Imaging and lives in Brooklyn with her family.
