Created in community with students and teachers of Digital Arts and Cinema Technology High School, Small Details highlights acts of resistance and change through lens-based media.  As minors, we are often dismissed or ignored in several sectors of our lives, yet as the next generation, we are greatly impacted by adults’ collective actions. Rather than focus on our repressed voices, our show emphasizes the ways we empower our voices through photography.

Each piece documents a “small detail” displaying moments of positive change — within ourselves, our families, and our communities. By exhibiting our complex world views, our hope is to uplift others to reflect on the many ways they can create change. While this year has been one of the toughest, photography recentered and grounded us. Our lenses became our voice, as our voice became a language, and through that language began larger conversations.  We hope this series not only inspires, but also causes action. The changes we make now are small, but as we gain more understanding of the world we begin to build the future we want to see. The process starts now, and we are ready to take on the responsibility of shaping this world.
