Friday, Jan. 13, 2017 – Sunday, May. 7, 2017

For the annual exhibition Eye on Houston: High School Documentary Photography, the Museum collaborates with area high schools to document and celebrate Houston’s diverse neighborhoods.

Eye on Houston invites students to offer a glimpse into their daily lives, experiences, and personal stories. Each generation witnesses Houston through new eyes, seeing and experiencing a fresh incarnation of the city. Utilizing photography as a tool, these student photographers document their perspectives.

This year marks the 22nd edition of the exhibition. All high schools in the Houston Independent School District were invited to share their work, and the Museum received more than 400 submissions. Students were motivated to participate by their teachers, including Ray Carrington, Neda Khan, Abigail Marte, Terry Merwin, Danielle Pontus, and Kelly Quarles.

The images selected showcase the talents of juniors and seniors from Bellaire High School, DeBakey High School for Health Professions, High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Jack Yates High School, Lamar High School, Sam Houston High School, and Westside High School.

“Eye on Houston: High School Documentary Photography” is on view in two locations: the Kinder Foundation Education Center in the Law Building, and Lower Beck Corridor in the Beck Building.
