Product Description

The In-Sight Photography Project has provided photographic instruction and camera gear to rural youth in and around Brattleboro, Vermont, since well before the dawn of digital, making it the Grande Dame of Youth Photography not-for-profits. The organization’s pay-what-you-can motto, paired with its four-tier payment system, encourages community support while also insuring that no student is turned away.

For this fourth story in our series, we spoke with In-Sight’s executive director, Victoria Heisler, and program director A. Hanus, about the organization’s three seasons of photography programming, a long history of working with AmeriCorps volunteers, In-Sight’s recent move to a newly renovated 3000-square-foot home, and its many programs and partnerships that support youth arts and photo education in surrounding communities spanning three New England states and beyond.

Jill Waterman: How long has In-Sight been in existence, and what is its origin story?

Victoria Heisler: During the early 1990s, our founders, John Willis and Bill Ledger, noticed there were a lot of teenagers loitering downtown, and getting moved along by the police. After deciding to offer their photography skills as a way to help keep kids off the street, they started In-Sight as a one-off summer class. It’s grown tremendously since then through community support, and next year will be our 30th anniversary.
