Youth in Focus comes to Zine

The Zine Project has just wrapped up a four day Digital Photography crash course brought to us by Youth in Focus.

Teaching Artist and Professional Photographer, Zorn B. Taylor taught the workshop, giving the youth a hands on opportunity to take their own photos and edit them in Light Room.

Check out some of the finished products from our talented intern photographers:

Not bad for only four days. Our youth interns’ minds are fertile and sharp and with a little nurturing, they can produce some great stuff. The medium of photography is a particularly fruitful exercise for young people. It’s quick, hands on, and it prompts them to start looking closer at their everyday worlds, as you can see. Have a talent or a skill you’d like to pass off to young people working on an independent publication? Visit out Get Involved page or contact shaunm@ccsww.org to find out how you could share it with them.
