Documentary Photography by Peter Schreyer and the Storytellers

This exhibition features Storytellers XVII, a 2016 body of photographs and oral histories created by teen photographers from the historic African American community of New Smyrna Beach. Under the guidance of Crealdé’s Executive Director and project creator Peter Schreyer, the young photographers were mentored and instructed in visual and narrative storytelling using traditional film-based photography. The project was produced in partnership with the Mary S. Harrell Black Heritage Museum in New Smyrna Beach. Students took field trips to the art studios and galleries at Crealdé School of Art in Winter Park, where they learned how to process film and turn negatives into exhibition photographs in the wet darkroom. The Daytona Beach exhibition will be augmented by the professional documentary photography of people and places by internationally exhibited photographer Peter Schreyer.
