The students were mentored and instructed in visual and narrative storytellingusing traditional film-based photography by Peter Schreyer, documentary photographer and Crealdé CEO. Students embarked on walking field trips in their DeLand neighborhood, and travelled to Crealdé in Winter Park, where they learned how to process film and turn negatives into exhibition-quality photographs in the darkroom. The teens also visited Hannibal Square Heritage Center, where they learned about the educational power of collecting oral histories and photographs within their own community.
