Reading - The future is in their hands

6th August 2010 at 01:00

Pupils in Reading have helped break down the barriers between generations through an innovative photography project.

Children from nine schools were asked to take pictures of the hands of an older person in their community, with the best efforts reproduced with the help of a professional photographer. Exhibitions are being held in schools, museums and community centre's across the town.

Emily Dawkins, assistant head at Caversham Primary School, co-ordinator of the project, said: "This has been a fantastic opportunity for schools and communities to start breaking down the constraints of modern life and working together.

"The photos show the impact of relationships on our lives and the project demonstrates the important role schools can have in maintaining and promoting these in the future." KM.
