April is Autism Awareness Month, and as a result, a number of editorials are banding together in the publication of articles highlighting the growing need for awareness on, and education about, Autism.

On the heels of her recent inauguration into Rehabilitation Through Photography, a New York-based NPO centered on the rehabilitative capacity of the creative arts, photographer AMY POSTLE sat down with JMI to talk about the program, her inspiring involvement, and the true power of creativity.
JMI REPS: You've recently become involved with the Rehabilitation Through Photography NPO here in New York. For those who are unfamiliar with the organization, what can you tell us about it?
AMY POSTLE: Rehabilitation Through Photography is a local not-for-profit that, for 70 years, has implemented a broad range of photography programs to various populations throughout New York, including the physically and emotionally challenged, elderly, at-risk youth, homeless, and the visually impaired.
JMI: What is your roll in the program?
AP: My program takes place at Marilyn David IVDU Upper School, a special needs high school for girls in Brooklyn. I am a volunteer photography instructor who created, implemented, and am currently teaching weekly photography classes to eleven emotionally and socially challenged girls, ages 13-21.
JMI: What techniques are introduced during a typical class period?
AP: We work with point and shoot cameras, learning practical skills while exploring the creative process.
JMI: While clearly centered on the photography process, what else would you say this program offers its students?
AP: My goal is not only to expose the students to the creative arts, but to enhance their life skills...to inspire and enable (them) to channel their energy in an open and expressive way, reinforcing independence, self-confidence, and a sense of accomplishment.
JMI: What has been one of your most memorable classroom experiences, thus-far?
AP: The highlight of my first class was a breakthrough I had with one of the students, Tahilla. Having been warned of her intense shyness, it was an overwhelming feeling to have her engage, ask questions, and be very focused. Watching her explore the room with her camera was equally exciting. She was drawn to shapes, color, and she, who had never even held a camera before, by far captured the most creative images of the day.
JMI: What insight has being a part of this program given you into the power of photography as a vessel of expression?
AP: While I love my commercial work, the joy I am receiving by helping these girls is so unique. In my class, I see students connecting to each other and to the world through their cameras...the creative process is helping them find their voice.

They went to Lehman College in the Bronx on one of the hottest days of the year to shoot this ad.

This one's for all you mama's out there! We love this story that Amy Postle shot for the September issue of Fitness Magazine! Amy's ability to capture the essence, comfort, and confidence in their own skin contributed to the tremendous success of this shoot! The ladies in the story sure do have a lot to be proud of!

The summer is wrapping up, like it or not, and while they are probably not jumping at the idea...it's time for the kids to head back to school! It's important to start thinking about what good habits you will instill in your kids now that the summer fun is behind us and it's time to get back to business as usual! An important aspect of building good habits is to ensure that we teach our youth about healthy eating and address the childhood obesity epidemic in this country head on.
