This Is My Eye

By Neela Vaswani
Illustrated by Neela Vaswani

It’s not what you look at, it’s what you see! Take a journey through New York City as it might be seen by a child through a camera lens.

Shapes, colors, patterns, and people are everywhere, and things look different depending on how you look at them — and who is doing the looking. In this playful ode to photography and point of view, a poetic story posits how one young girl might capture moments of insight, community, and art in her beloved hometown, New York City. With the popularity of camera phones, photo-journaling, and photo-posting sites, this fictional exploration of photography as one young girl’s form of self-expression is guaranteed to appeal to budding photographers.

  • A strikingly beautiful introduction to the art of photography as a form of self-expression.
  • With the ubiquitous availability of phone cameras and the popularity of selfies, photo-journaling, and photo-posting sites, this is a timely and inspiring creative photo-essay with guaranteed appeal for all budding photographers.
  • Acclaimed author Neela Vaswani’s first text for younger readers.
