Photography as a Tool of Engagement

with the St. Lukes-Roosevelt C.A.R.E.S. Program

CARES Program: Roosevelt Hospital, NYC: The purpose of CARES is to provide a safe and therapeutic school environment for New York City public high school students whose previous school performance has been limited by emotional and behavior difficulties, including alcohol or drug problems. Our project utilized photography as a tool to involve students in discovering the larger world and as a means of exploring different interests. We visited, photographed and interacted with different worlds including music and sports and created an exhibit for the rotunda of the hospital featuring the students’ words/images about Who I Am/Who I Hope to Be.
