American photographer Wendy Ewald began her work in 1969, when she taught photography to Innu and Mi’kmaq Native-American children in Canada. She went on to work in Kentucky and she published her first book, Portraits and Dreams in 1985. Her work has been shown in the 1997 Whitney Biennial and in the 2013 Melbourne Festival. In 2001 she published a book about her teaching, I Wanna Take Me a Picture: Teaching Photography and Writing to Children as well as a children’s book, The Best Part of Me. A retrospective of Ewald’s work, Secret Games, was published by Scalo and shown at museums across the US and Europe from 2000-2006; it has also been exhibited at the ICP in New York, the Corcoran Gallery, and the Nederlands Foto Institute in Rotterdam. In 2007 ArtAngel commissioned Ewald to create an installation in Margate, England, accompanied by a book, Towards a Promised Land.
