Capturing Club, a project showcasing photography and audio stories captured in partnership with Club Boulevard Humanities Magnet School, has published a website to showcase student work. The project is the result of an undergraduate class called Capturing Transience: Documentary Photography and the Digital Age taught by Susie Post-Rust.

“Childhood is one of the most transient times in our lives, and each Duke student spent the full semester photographing one story,” Post-Rust wrote in an e-mail.

With a curriculum of authentic art, Club has a unique focus. As a public magnet, Club attracts students from all over Durham with from a diverse array of backgrounds. The arts are brought to life by the faculty, including seven full-time specialist teachers (Art, Music, Dance, Drama, Spanish, Library Media and Physical Education.) Club says they “are proud of the partnership between our experienced, creative teachers and enthusiastic, involved families.”

A donation from Andrew Johnson produced the Capturing Club class website. Duke students provided final prints for a public exhibit for the families and staff. The website and all prints were all donated to the school as a gift with the hope to support the hard work teachers and staff put in every day to educate the children of Durham.
