Wendy Ewald
2003

For more than twenty-five years, Wendy Ewald has taught photography to children and young people around the world. She has encouraged her students to become photographers in their own right, turning their experiences and dreams into powerful, poetic images. Likening herself to a "translator" of those images, her long-standing commitment to helping children recognize the worth of their own visions has gained her numerous awards and widespread recognition.

Ms. Ewald has been the recipient of numerous awards, including a MacArthur Fellowship, several National Endowment for the Arts grants, and the Lila Wallace Reader's Digest Visual Arts Fellowship for South Africa. In recent years, she has lectured widely through the recognition of the Caixa Foundation in Barcelona, Spain; the Buffalo State College Distinguished Lecturer Series; and the Mondrian Foundation Commission and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
