Interpretations of Nature
Growing up in New England, learning to appreciate and protect the nature surrounding us is a central theme of our lives. WE uniquely connect to and respect the natural world, whether we revere the beauty of that not made by man or the serenity and calm that resonates throughout it. Since its beginnings, photography has been a medium of choice to capture the wonders of nature, and every one of us has our own interpretation to share.
In this modern world, too often our digital photography remain cooped up on our personal computers, missing the opportunity to reach out to and inspire others. Exhibiting our art and our respective perspectives of the world around us, particularly as adolescents, is a meaningful way for us to demonstrate our values and creativity.
Founded in the Autumn of 2011, the LHS Photography Club connects students sharing a common passion for photography to establish friendships and share their work. Every photographer bring their own set of experiences that empower the club members to learn so much from each other.
Yet the LHS Photography Club hopes to go beyond merely improving its membersí art, also aspiring to reach out and return to the community. In 2012, they partnered with Students for the protection and Care of Animals to produce greeting cards featuring their own photography and raise money for the Massachusetts SPC. Other service projects include taking photo at animal shelters and organizing a Help-Portrait event, a program that provides portraits to families-in-need.
