Exhibition installation of 'Lesson' at Belconnen Arts Centre from 23 September until 15 October 2017.
In 2015 photographer Sean Davey spent six weeks at Charnwood-Dunlop School as part of the ArtsACT Artists-in-Schools (now defunct) program, funded by the Australia Council.
Sean spent time with all classes at the school, from Kindergarten to Year Six, and ESL (English as a Second Language) classes, teaching digital photography as well as setting up a working darkroom in which he introduced students to analogue black and white photography.
Sean was free to photograph in and around the school, producing his own body of work as well as collecting all the photographs made by the students.
This exhibition features a selection of images made by the students and by Sean, as well as featuring three books of photographs made by the artist together with the students.
