Being 13, Spirit Week, NGH
"I enjoyed learning about how Nancy has to look down through it [her camera] because it does not have a prism and this allows her to feel more connected with the subject."
"In meeting Nancy Grace Horton I learned that I shouldn't be quick to press the delete button and that anything can inspire a photograph."
"Being inspired by fashion, I enjoyed hearing about how [Nancy] aims to use clothing and colors to improve her work and create contrast. Looking through her works and listening to her process, I learned a little more about inspiration. It intrigued me that she did a lot of similar things that I do (looking for clothes, finding interesting perspectives)."
"I loved the way she expressed her interest in raw photography and the idea of representing a natural image that has not been totally edited. I learned a lot about looking at photography and understanding a deeper meaning through inspection of the gender of the subject, the background, the positioning, and so many other factors. Since she is the first photographer I have met in person who has explained her point of view and her process, she made a great first impression for me towards future photographers that I may meet or look at."
"I loved hearing about her ideas on feminism and social pieces. They spoke words to me as I am exploring those same ideas through my art. Overall, she was a really cool lady and her art spoke to me."
