Zoom in on National Photography Month

The UK's first National Photography Month (June 2012) celebrates the value of photographs as historical records with the launch of a photographic archive project for secondary schools: My School in Focus.

What is it?

A free resource pack that encourages schools to preserve a physical record of their site and local area by getting pupils to take photographs. The guidebook includes sections on:

preparing for your photography workshop;

advice on cameras and equipment;

ideas for using images around the school;

photographic techniques and concepts.

Schools are encouraged to get pupils to curate their own exhibition, displaying their personal histories to an audience and celebrating their project work.
