Truth With A Camera Workshop


http://www.truthwithacamera.org

Announcing Truth With A Camera – Guadalajara, Mexico
May 23-31, 2009
There are only 15 spots so you are encouraged to sign up early.
Please visit the site www.truthwithacamera.org for more information and to register for this class.

Imagine children as young as 6-years-old, running in and out of traffic on a 6-lane highway, trying to sell a piece of gum, wash a windshield, or juggle oranges for change. They lack education, suffer from malnutrition, and are surrounded by a world of danger and loneliness. Now imagine it is your job to tell the whole world who these children are. To breath light into an existence too few know about. That’s the critical role photographers working with non-profits and NGO’s play. It is exactly what you’ll be tasked with if you join our next Truth With A Camera workshop in Guadalajara, Mexico.

At over 5 million people, Mexico’s second largest city is one of the most modern in Mexico, though social inequity and urban poverty remain a constant and painful reality for the tens of thousands who have sunk desperately below an already subterranean poverty line. This is no vacation. During this intensive week, you will be working along side students from the University of Guadalajara, one of the largest and most respected public institutions of higher education in Mexico. After each full day of shooting, your evenings will be spent editing your work with some of the leaders in the field of documentary photography from America and Mexico. Your shared assignments, at one of our partnering NGOs, will offer you the chance to be both witness and advocate. A chance to build experience and make a difference – by donating your work to the NGO – at the same time.
