J. Kirk Felsman Fellowship collection, 2014 0.5 Linear Feet
The J. Kirk Felsman Fellowship Collection contains 97 digital photographic prints from the series "Waves of Childhood: Photographs taken by Syrian Girls in Za'atari Refugee Camp" facilitated by 2014 Felsman Fellow Laura Doggett. The world's second largest refugee camp, Za'atari Refugee Camp in Jordan is home to nearly 50,000 Syrian refugee children. For three months, Laura Doggett mentored a group of Syrian girls ages 14-18 in a media workshop to gain artistic and technical training in photography and video, with encouragement to reflect on their own stories and those of their community. The color digital photographs are printed on Premium Luster 11"x17" photo paper.
