Children's Polaroids


February 13, 1997|By John Dorsey

Wendy Ewald has traveled the world for decades teaching photography to children. She has taught the Micmac Indians in Canada, the children of Appalachian coal miners and others from India to South Africa to North Carolina.

In 1991 she went to Chiapas, the southernmost state of Mexico, and spent months teaching photography to Mayan and Mexican children there. The results can be seen in "Wendy Ewald: Retratos y Suenos/Portraits and Dreams: Photographs by Mexican Children" at the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery at UMBC. The exhibit of Polaroid images is on an international tour that has included stops in New York, California, Arizona and other venues in the United States and Latin America.

The photos are on display at the Kuhn Library Gallery of the University of Maryland Baltimore County, 1000 Hilltop Circle. Noon to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays (Thursdays until 8 p.m.), 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, through March 28. Call (410) 455-2270.
