Wildest Dream: Researching the effects of climate change on animal species, i.imagine teen photography students of Gray Middle School, and Ryle High School were led by Zoo photographer Lisa Hubbard on an up-close and personal journey to meet and photograph endangered species of the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. Focused on a mission of giving voice to the voiceless, students created photographs intended to emotionally connect viewers with animals, inspiring humans to apply their skills and knowledge to being part of the solution of climate change. This collection of large-format prints spans the entire outdoor walkway of the Zoo’s former Polar Bear exhibit. By scanning each image’s QR code, enjoy meeting i.imagine photographers and learning about their “Wildest Dreams.” This collaborative project with the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden celebrates young aspiring photographers of our community that are finding their voice through the lens, while learning how their skills and talent can impact social change.
Wildest Dreams is also on view at the i.imagine Center of Photography on Saturdays in October, 10am–2pm (10259 US HWY 42, Union Kentucky, 41091). Admission is free.
