Flowers. Butterflies. Children. Elderly people. Dogs. The subjects of the photos are not particularly unusual. But when visitors to Reasons to be Cheerful, an ice cream parlor in West Concord, learn the story behind the shop’s current exhibition, they stop to take a second look.
The brainchild of teachers-in-training Rebecca Laders and Jason Musselman, the photos represent their project in Honduras, where they spent a summer in a rural village teaching children ages 5 to 18 about photography. Each photo in the show was taken by one of their students in Flores, and proceeds from sales will be used to help build a library there.
