Vashon Through A Lens

    A photography showing at a north St. Louis art gallery is turning some heads. But the story here isn’t just about the pictures. The people in them, and those behind them are even more extraordinary. This is the story of a group of teenagers from a low-income neighborhood who took an opportunity and ran with it.

    The opportunity came by way of the St. Louis Contemporary Art Museum, and a partnership they formed with Vahson a year earlier to help provide an arts program. Prior to that, the school hadn’t been able to offer any consistent arts education program for several years. That was a motivator to professional photographer Tiffany Sutton, who would design a photography program for the students.
