Participatory Photography

According to (Chilton et al. 2009, 75), “Participatory Photography ‘enhance[s] internal reflection, self-awareness, and the exchange of individual’s perceptions in order to initiate personal and community change’ Additionally, it overcomes prohibitive barriers of literacy that are often present. It is within discussions engendered by images that communities find the tools to rebuild and/or transform themselves.”

Filmmaking: Production and education

We LOVE making films, short, long, fiction, non-fiction, documentaries, institutional. We also LOVE facilitating collective filmmaking processes with groups so they can make their own films. We take great care in collaborating with you or the group we are working with to create powerful and emotional messages and inspiring stories with a cinematic feeling.

Creative Photography

At the core of our practice is the idea that photography by people and for people can be a positive and civic tool. We believe photography in all its forms is a powerful and meaningful experience that can make a difference, be it in the darkroom, the studio, in the streets or in the classrooms. By nature, photography can permeate all fields and disciplines; it is a passport to the unknown.
