Photoslam Young Curators connect to historical images from the Portland Museum collection.

The images in the gallery below were chosen by our Photoslam campers as images that spoke to them in some way. Photo West photographer Ron Burgis taught the campers about photography and how to scan the historical images to create a digital format. Poet Lance Newman worked with the Young Curators to create poems expressing their feelings about each image. Please click on each image for a full view, and to read the poems the Young Curators wrote.
