Last fall, I was honored to work with the students of The Epiphany School of Charlotte. I provided candid school portraits of their students and spent time with the children, documenting their school day ~ reading, listening, working with teachers, relaxing at recess and hanging out with their buddies. The Epiphany School of Charlotte provides an alternative educational solution for children with social and communication challenges such as Asperger’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or Sensory Processing Disorder. Epiphany opened its doors in the fall of 2010 and will be expanding in the coming year. Head of School Michelle Smith had a vision for the school’s website – a slide show in black and white showing every day scenes with an overlay quote giving a personal perspective. I’m a great believer that pictures have the power to tell the story – whether it’s a news story, an interview, a feature or to show how a non-profit works. I enjoyed collaborating with Michelle to tell the story of Epiphany in photos. She included Nanine Hartzenbusch Photography on the Community Partners page and I am thrilled! You’ll find a great list of resources so check it out! Please visit their website to view the complete slide show and learn about this new school that is changing lives one at a time.
