“Faces of GW”- Students photography exhibit
“Faces of GW”is a collaborate photography project that was inspired and designed after National Geographic’s Faces of America article. Through this exhibit, we explore the stories of the faces that walk through the halls of our high school every day. Sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of school and work, we do not get to connect with each other in a meaningful way. Photographers were asked to photograph, and connect with a student or teacher at this school that they have never spoken to. The purpose of this exercise is to connect with each other as a GW community through our experiences, personal struggles and common struggles as we navigate the world around us. Ultimately, student or teacher, athlete or artist, we are human and it is this human-ess that drives our One George community to the core.
