February - March, 2012
In the spring of 2012, Picture Change embarked on our second project, partnering with Imagine Ministry in Los Brasiles, Nicaragua. Our nine students came from broken families, lived in homes built of whatever materials could be found, and were often required to take on many more responsibilities than the average pre-teen.
Their photography showed thoughtful observance of their barrio (neighborhood), providing a glimpse into their lives and family structures, yet also see their home as they see it: a close-knit community with a strong sense of family.
We had over 200 people come to see our gallery show and the students were excited to give their printed photos back to the community at the close of the show.
