Join Lion’s Tooth Project youth on a panel discussion featuring their photographic work Reflex-tions,on an exploration of self through portraiture utilizing pinhole photography, mirrors, and creative writing.
In photography, mirrors direct light to create an image. What would it look like to dive into the looking glass in search of the stories and truths we hold within? Their work is the beginning of a beautiful photographic journey to collectively reflect on our own images and stories through time and space.
Moderated by Natalia Guerrero Founder & Director of Lion’s Tooth Project (LTP), Miyagi Scott and Daniel-José Cyan Peer Lead’s of LTP.
This panel is part of Photoville Education Day, and also part of the Youth Photo Summit which is open to the public.
Lion’s Tooth Project inspires immigrant, queer, trans and BIPOC youth to have more agency around their personal stories, healing, and wellness through photography and earth medicine. We believe in the healing power of community, story-telling, story-keeping, and connection to the earth. We center the voices of QTBIPOC youth by connecting in our legacy, joy, and experiences as a tool for liberation.
Offering year-round intentional and youth-led programming we encourage young people to explore / honor their identities, understand the world around them, build leadership skills, and define what wellness and healing mean for them.
