Sheba Marx, workshop participant of our last Be the Media! workshop, "Rediscivoering the Every Day: Basic Documentary Photography, with Brenda Ann Kenneally, created a post on her blog including her workshop photos:
On Sunday, I was lucky to attend a photography workshop at the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, New York, led by Brenda Ann Kenneally who is an award winning photographer. As stated on her webiste, "her long-term projects are intimate portraits of social issues that intersect where the personal is political." In 2005, she began a project called Upstate Girls in Troy. As she desciribes it, the project follows seven women for now seven years "as their escape routes out of generational poverty have lead to further entrapments documenting early teen pregnancy."
Here are some of the photos that I took as we walked around a few blocks of Troy, the former home of Uncle Sam, as well as textile and iron industries employing thousands. A short history of Troy is available here. The photos below speak for themselves.
This page is dedicated to eating RAW, and inspired by the raw food reception after the Afro Asian Scientific Soul Duo event with Fred Ho and Dr. Salim Washington at The Sanctuary for Independent Media on March 30, 2011. Special thanks to photographers Ellie Markovich and Chelsea Kereszi.

"Purple Hearts," a series of portraits by photojournalist Nina Berman, documents the return of 17 Army soldiers and Marines wounded in the Iraq war. "Youths tend to get wrong impression from video games, TV shows and movies that tend to romanticize and glorify combat," said Bob Alft.
Sanctuary volunteer Bob Alft has made a personal commitment to get Nina Berman's "Purple Hearts" photographs, exhibited at the Sanctuary in Fall '09, to schools and community organizations across the region.
Congrats to Bob, for arranging to have an exhibit at a local high school, and for getting an article written in the Times Union!

"It's great to see this important work have a life in the Capital Region, beyond our gallery show. These are powerful and moving images that reflect and create an important debate about the role of military in society and recruiters in our schools," says Steve Pierce, Executive Director, Media Alliance at The Sanctuary for Independent Media.
