Duke students taking a class at Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies spent the 2012 fall semester documenting the life of Lakewood Montessori. The class is called Capturing Transience: Documentary Photography and the Digital Age. This time of sixth grade through eighth grade is one of the most transient times in our lives, and each Duke or Carolina student spent the semester photographing an individual, class, or program within the school.
Service learning at Duke provided a grant to produce this website, and students provided final prints for an exhibit during an Open School Night. The website and all prints were given to the school as a gift with the hope that they support the hard work teachers and staff put in every day to educate the children of Durham.
