There’s something to be said about the difference between consuming and creating, and there’s even more to be said about inspiring kids to create more than they consume. 

In an effort to do just that, Magnum photojournalist Susan Meiselas compiled the book Eyes Open as a source of photography ideas for kids. The book includes 23 ideas, including projects such as capturing distinct neighborhood characteristics. In addition, the book features examples intended to inspire and act as a guide. Eyes Open is a resource every child should have on their bookshelves. 


Compiled by Magnum photojournalist Susan Meiselas, Eyes Open is a sourcebook of photography ideas for kids―to engage with the world through the camera.

Twenty-three enticing projects help inspire a process of discovery and new ways of telling stories and animating ideas. Eyes Open features photographs by young people from around the globe, as well as work by professional artists that demonstrates how a simple idea can be expanded. Playful and meaningful, this book is for young would-be photographers and those interested in expressing themselves creatively.
