"I realized that you don't need eyes to make beautiful photography."
- Jessica Young, Wide Angle’s Youth Festival Committee

On November 14th, our Youth Festival Committee took on Seeing Beyond Sight’s Photography Challenge - and created photographs while blindfolded in Patterson Park! See some of their photos at www.wideanglemedia.org.

Our photo shoot was inspired by Seeing Beyond Sight – Photographs by Blind Teenagers, the new book by Tony Deifell. Wide Angle Youth Media is proud to be a co-host of the SEEING BEYOND SALON: An evening of art & perception at the American Visionary Art Museum. We hope you can join us!

Interested in how media and art interact with social and community issues? Look
no further than Wide Angle Youth Media. A wonderful Baltimore organization
that works with Baltimore youth using many different media of communication.
The work these kids produce is amazing, beautiful, and urgent. Well worth your
while to check this event out.
