FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Concordia Lutheran High School are giving back through their photography.
From 6-8 p.m. May 4, students in the Photography 4 Change club will be displaying their work at A Hope Center, 3630 Hobson Road, Fort Wayne. The ticket sales from the event will support A Hope Center.
The focus of the club was centered on artistic expression to give back to the community. The students in Photography 4 Change believe that an excellent photograph has the potential to affect change, to make a difference and to expand a viewer’s field of vision.
“The goal was to allow the students to have an opportunity to take the time to get to know their subjects and to reveal stories together in a way that might make the world a better place,” said Kylee Heisler, art teacher and coordinator for the club.
The photographs are all in black and white to allow viewers to concentrate on the image rather than be distracted by color. They showcase the women who have used The Hope Center as means to choose life for their babies.
“Each photographer brings his or her vision to a subject. The sum of these visions is what provides a compelling social comment,” Heisler said. “Through these photo shoots and interviews the women felt empowered and special.”
Tickets are $10 at the door, and all the proceeds of the tickets sold will go to The Hope Center. There will also be a donation box in the gallery as well as a raffle for a free family photo session.
“I am so proud of the students who given back to these women and the organization that does so much for our community and the future generation,” Heisler said. “The students involved used photography to truly make a difference with art as their tool. Creativity is powerful. It has the power to change lives, ignite a dream and broaden people’s view of the world.”
