Midtown Through Our Eyes

A photography project of Melrose Elementary and John Hopkins Middle School Students

44 Energized student journalists.

Countless eye opening experiences.

Over 12 days this summer, with cameras and notebooks in hand, the student journalists explored the Midtown neighborhood in St. Petersburg through a series of field trips.  Students documented everything from a drum line at a neighborhood church to a mansion being built in the heart of the neighborhood.  Through this exhibit of 100 photos, you'll truly see Midtown through their eyes.
