The George Gund Foundation is a longtime supporter of programs and policies that emphasize the importance of a child’s early years. The photographs in this annual report reflect the work of Invest in Children, Cuyahoga County’s public-private early childhood partnership. Sage Sohier’s images offer a delightful glimpse into the daily lives of these preschoolers as they learn about the world around them and build the critical foundation needed for success in later life. Sohier, an artist and freelance photographer whose work is featured in numerous publications and public collections, is the recipient of many awards, including a prestigious John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship. She also has taught photography at a number of colleges and universities, including Wellesley College, the Rhode Island School of Design and Harvard University.
