A posting on Facebook today led me to a collection of 49 black and white photos taken of children and conductors at the Peto Institute.
These are not dated but look to me like they were probably taken in the 1990s, and how they came to be taken is not stated.
The photographer, Stuart Freedman, started taking photos professionally in 1991 and is now a celebrated photographer worldwide covering a wide variety of topics and events.
Lots more photos now upon the SAHK website for the 7th World Congress
It looks as though a good time was had by all!
I have been sent the link to a website of a photographer offering advice on taking good pictures. We all want to record our children at the various stages in their development and this site, full of fun, is worth looking at to get good tips for this. Taking pictures in CE sessions is also an art in itself to make sure all is recorded accurately, clearly and usefully. Having plenty to select the best examples of good posture and position in the group to put up on the web is paramount. There are some pictures up about CE at
Unfortunately,I cannot find the name of the photographer responsible for this site.
Is this a first?I have just read a news report of an exhibition of photographs taken by professionals at a Conductive Education centre in the UK.
The Megan Baker House Photographic Exhibition opened in Worcester Cathedral yesterday with photos of the participants and their families taken during sessions at the Centre. It will remain there until Sunday 21 March.
It is hoped that the exhibition may move to other venues.
I am not aware of any other such ventures, so please let me know if there are any, or have been any.
I was sent a link to some photos on the Internet which I thought I would mention on this blog.Conductive Education centres all over the world have posted pictures on their websites illustrating their work with children, but these are very different. They are black and white, not colour, and carefully shot so they are more like works of art in their lighting and composition. Very interesting.
