We’ve talked about virtual field trips and connecting with other schools online many times. But what about actually seeing how your classroom stacks up to the others around the world? Julian Germain has been doing just that. He has photographed classrooms from England to the US to Nigeria to Bangladesh to Qatar. You get the idea. Below is a small sampling of his pictures and be sure to check out his website for more information / how to order the pictures as a bound book, etc.
Julian is currently working with the British Council and other organizations on a global project about education scheduled to be a major exhibition and publication in 2012. He is also planning to publish and exhibit photographs made by Brazilian street children over the last 16 years. He lives and works in Northumberland, UK.
