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.
