Building Community Through Photography

I did a presentation on this topic at the Massachusetts Library Association conference in Falmouth this morning, and posted the PowerPoint on Slideshare:


Links don’t work very well in Slideshare, so here is a list of all the links from this presentation:

Spinning Room Boys

  • “Spinning Room Boys, Salem, Mass.” — Photograph by Lewis Hine, 1911, National Archives. The title is mine — in the National Archives site, this is identified as “The very smallest boy is Henry Fournier, has worked 2 months in spinning room. The next in size is Adelard Gagnon, works in spinning room. Adelard Dion, works in spinning room. Smallest in back row is Albert Valbert. Salem, Mass., 10/25/1911″
  • Lewis Hine Project — Joe Manning of Florence, Massachusetts, has been tracking down the stories and the descendants of some of the children photographed by Lewis Hine

    I ran a workshop about using Flickr as a community building tool and it really looks like this post has some great links to add to it. Thanks for the slide-show.
