We rely on volunteers who donate their time and talent to helping with A Thousand Words Project. Collaborative partnerships are created through teams- featuring amateur photographers in the ConnectAbility community and local volunteers consisting of professional photographers, UNG Visual Arts and Physical Therapy students, and committed family and friends.
I was asked to teach others how to use a camera and appreciate the wonders of the photographic image. I figured I could do this and looked forward to sharing the craft I have learned over many years. Watching these 61 year-old twins use a camera for the first time in their lives was amazing and I was reminded of the wonder I felt when I made my very first photograph. Their unbridled excitement at seeing an image they took humbled me. I take so much for granted. I thought I was teaching them the magic of photography, when in reality I had forgotten the magic of photography until they came along. ”
