Macro Photography Workshop at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation Center


We recently visited Child Life Specialist, Lisa Del Guidice and ArtWorks Teaching Artist, Steven Hazlett to observe Steven’s Macro Photography Workshop at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation. Young Artist, Harry was so excited to introduce Steven to his brother and parents. The boys scattered glitter, pompoms and confetti onto paper plates and used a digital camera to create macro compositions. They also decorated frames for their finished pieces with the same objects they photographed. Steven said about his program, “I like to think that the patients I work with are left feeling inspired to continue exploring and appreciating the world around them as if they’re seeing it for the first time. The wonderful thing about macro work in a hospital is that it transports you beyond the barriers of that setting, all through the lens of a camera!” #ArtWorksKids
