Featuring Student artists from venicearts: Julissa, Silvia Curiel, Ashley Sanchez, Lilia Destin, Kayla M.
venicearts Advanced Photography students present their long-term personal projects. Working within the intimate themes of their own identity, students deepened their skills and knowledge in photography, while conceiving and investigating stories of personal relevance. Panelists will present and discuss their projects, which range from: coming of age as an LGBTQ person, escaping domestic violence, and a young person growing up on the cusp of two cultures, Oaxacan and American. The 24-week project included work-sharing and critique as well as review and discussion of select works by professional photographers leading to writing and book creation (the final project).
