‘This is my city’. Reading photo-essays by my Berlin pupils

This paper offers readings of three examples from a photo-essay project undertaken in 2022 by a group of Year 7 pupils in Berlin. Many of the photo-essays centred on locations like schools, parks and shops, but also included places of worship, the graves of ancestors and evidence of family ties in other cities. Mirroring the practices of the longstanding FORUM editor Michael Armstrong, I explore and reflect on how my pupils interact with the city and how the city interacts with the educational identities of my pupils.
