Photographer Ned Castle collaborated with youth living in difficult circumstances across Vermont to re- enact high and low moments from their lives. The resulting large- scale photographs depict elaborate re- creations of these situations. Audio narrations by the participants provide context for the photographs and explain their significance. The responsibility of creative decision- making was given to the youth—from selection of highs and lows to selection of final photographs and audio. While the exhibition still bears the imprint of the photographer, its resonance comes from the participants’ willingness to share such personal moments. Their openness provides a revealing look at the range of experiences that have shaped their lives.
