Photographer Rachel Papo with authors Ariel Shanberg and Holly Graff
Spend a lovely Saturday afternoon with us to celebrate the publication of Rachel Papo’s book Homeschooled.
While living in Woodstock, NY with her husband and baby daughter, Papo developed her interest in counter-culture education. As criticism of the U.S. education system grew on a national level she decided to explore this controversial topic in depth and challenge her own prejudgments on the issue. In 2011, she began to photograph a small number of families living in the Catskills, who practice homeschooling. Papo focused particularly on the children, in an attempt to capture what she describes as “their spirit, and the meaning of growing up outside the conventional four classroom walls.”
