Girls in Focus aims to empower young women through hands-on workshops that teach the art and science of documentary photography. Students are encouraged to seek out and portray stories in the world around them while learning to observe, anticipate, compose and ultimately capture the truth of their subjects with a greater sense of confidence and technical proficiency.
Girls in Focus seeks to encourage young women to assist one another by way of constructive criticism, peer reviews, and careful selection of their own images. Ultimately, each workshop will end with a gallery show of the best of each student’s work, as well as a coffee table book of images available for purchase. Proceeds from each workshop will fund future workshops, ensuring that no student will ever be turned away on the basis of her ability to pay.
