Story Stitchers held a studio workshop for STL Youth Jobs interns with photographer Gina Grafos in June. Stitchers visited United Provisions near the Storefront Studio and youth chose and purchased fruits and vegetables which they had not eaten before. Gina taught the interns about lighting for portraiture, exposures, and the group enjoyed a lively photo session, trying out roles as both models and photographers. Afterwards Stitchers enjoyed a healthy lunch together.
A selection of the photographs are on view through the month of July in the lobby of the Commerce Bank, 6319 Delmar Blvd. in the Loop District.
