…and so it grows!

These are some serious new photographers!!!

This is the exciting part of what we can do.  Making a connection and running a workshop is only the beginning.  What happens afterwards has the potential to be even more rewarding, and ultimately it is what we strive for at Cameras4Change.  Giving people that have never had the opportunity to use a camera is an amazing experience.  It is invigorating, soul defining and gives meaning to and for everyone involved.  Workshop participants usually take the camera and run with it, to take photos, to have the experience to define their world, to look back on who they are, where they come from, and then where they want to go!  Photography has the potential to offer all of this.  Our June workshops in Mexico were just that, and now our partner organizations are continuing an even deeper and rich legacy with the cameras we left behind!  We love these photos of the budding new photographers in Huamantla eager to take photos!!  Thank you to Liliana Riva Palacio of Proyecto ConcentrArte working in conjunction with Sistema Biobolsa and Isla Urbana.  Lili is creating a living legacy with the cameras from the workshops!!  It is fantastic that they are continuing to be utilized and introducing photography to whole new generations that would otherwise not have touched a camera yet!!


A C4C Short by Celsa Calderoni

This past June we met an amazing person in Celsa Calderoni, a videographer and film maker in Mexco City.  Celsa agreed to come out and collaborate with us as we ran our workshop in Quiltepec.  She shot and edited this piece for us in record time and we are in awe!!  It was a meeting of like minds as we symbiotically knew what the other wanted and needed!  The result is this great little short promo!  Enjoy!    http://youtu.be/p9EumpTEK3E
