ABOUT THE PROJECT
In June of 2015, through a successful Kickstarter campaign, we raised enough funds to buy 4 Nikon DSLR cameras and supplementary video equipment. Our goal was to get those cameras into the hands of young individuals who are members of artisan communities in Oaxaca, Mexico and train them to use the equipment so they can show the world what they do and how they do it. Below is the culmination of their work thus far. As a team, we focused on documenting the process and practices of the artisan studios through organized visits and one-day shoots. In contrast, the photos are the team members' own work and delve much deeper into the lives of these young people and their families.
