As part of a class at the Center for Documentary Studies taught by Susie Post-Rust, Capturing Transience: Documentary Photography and the Digital Age, undergraduates from Duke University and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill spent the semester documenting stories at E.K. Powe Elementary School in Durham, North Carolina. Each student produced photos and slideshows focused on one subject, whether a person, a class, or an idea—the community garden, or the art class, for instance. Visit the students’ new website, The People of Powe, to view their work.

Students displayed their multimedia slideshows and photos to the students and teachers on Monday, December 9, and a print exhibit that evening was open to parents and friends as well.
