(In the photographer's words) Left: As I wait to have my picture taken, I notice my shadow standing out, so I snap a quick shot. Middle: Looking at life from a different angle — an old swing sways in the wind on my way to school. I rest underneath it, watching the leaves dance on the sky. Right: The Little Yellow House of Recovery, my Narcotics Anonymous meeting house. I have great relationships with a lot of the people there.

With support from Ken's Camera and a donation from the Eastman Kodak Co., the students are documenting their lives, families and communities on film while studying historic photographs and photographers during a weekly class at the Everett Public Library. The class is taught by Herald photographers Annie and Mark Mulligan and facilitated by teaching artist Henri Wilson.
In the coming weeks, more student work will be featured in the newspaper and added to the gallery. Click here to see some of Clements' work. To see the first part in this series, click here.
