“Life Through Their Lens” Photo Book

Imagine a project that would allow a community of people to have a voice in describing who they are, and the very weapon that has been used against them – the camera – can be used now as a window into their world, through their eyes told by their images and stories.  Many have marketed this community – but the story hasn’t been told by them, through their own lens, and in in a respectful way that honors their culture and values.  The purpose of this photobook project is to give community members a chance to tell their story, their way.
