Nearly 500 photographs taken by Gwinnett County Public Schools middle and high school students will be on display at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center starting January 18 and running through the end of February. Called Shutter Sense, the event is a teacher- and student-initiated, countywide photography exhibit showcasing talent from approximately 20 schools. The 500 photographs are grouped into 15 different categories of photography approaches. Awards are given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each category.
Shutter Sense was created to provide students with a professional space to present their work, a quiet location that isn’t chaotic and encourages close inspection of the displays. The photographs will be judged Saturday, January 19, with a reception taking place on Tuesday, February 17, at 2:30 p.m. The Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center is located at 2020 Clean Water Drive in Buford.
