This "Photography and Land Use" residency offered Watkins Mill High School students an opportunity to focus their lens on a social issue of our time: Land Use in Our Community. In collaboration with Modern World History teachers James Torrence and Bryan Clark, class discussion highlighted history and social context of environmental and human needs in their community.   An invaluable experience for students to understand how humans have interacted with their environment to create neighborhoods, and examine how the changes that take place over time impact their lives.  Photography provided an opportunity to view their community with an artistic eye.
