I was invited by high school teacher, Teresa Genneralli, to bring the Veterans Portrait Project to Hazlet, NJ. Naturally, I said yes. It was an opportunity for me to teach students, reach out to a new community and photograph veterans all at the same time. Teresa included another teacher, Rosemarie Wilkinson, whose students were going to interview the veterans and write-up something on each other them. She was also nice enough to house my assistant, Trish, and me for our brief visit.
Here’s a quick video showcasing the Raritan High School VPP session and educational outreach day!
It was wonderful to hear the young students say, “Thank you for your service,” to the veterans. Plus, the students did a great job behind the camera! See for yourself below…
