A photography mentoring project to motivate and train young people to tell stories about their lives and community

UCSD Extension Photography Instructor, Leland Foerster, and a group of adult, volunteer photographers drawn from Extension’s Photography Program will mentor a group of young people from San Diego’s Barrio Logan neighborhood in the production of documentary photographs that tell stories about the young people’s lives and community. Extension will create a course for the project. The Museum of Photographic Arts will provide exhibit preparation support and the Logan Heights Branch of San Diego City Library will recruit the young photographers and provide a venue for weekly critiques and editing of project photos. The project will begin in the summer of 2014 and end in the winter of 2015 with a series of exhibits and possibly a book.
