“My family is very supportive of peace and equal rights, so I thought I would take advantage of that for this project. I chose my mother’s stained glass peace sign because I believe it is quite eye-catching, and very appealing to look at. I think people need to recognize that peace should always be the number one option when it comes to conflicts.”
ARTIST BIO: Edward Pfaff is a Grade 12 student at Princeton High School.
PROJECT: Photography students were challenged by art teacher Lindsey Holliday to create imagery based on their own personal passion or connection to themes of Peace and Social Justice in regards to Equality and Equity. Students viewed and discussed the Equality/ Equity Illustration, Bisa Butler’s The Safety Patrol quilt, Shepard Fairey’s American Rage poster, and Frank Willis Thomas’ Branded photograph. They also viewed the series published by Amplifier Art, 12 Conversations Seek Common Ground. Students were encouraged to develop their ideas in a plan and create their artwork using media and techniques of their choice.
