Abriendo Puertas: Mexican-American Women’s Oral History Project

PRO Neighborhoods, Tucson, AZ
1999 – 2000
PRO Neighborhoods (www.proneighborhoods.org) asked me to teach photography in Spanish to a passionate group of Mexican-American women working on an oral history project. Together we explored basic photographic concepts and SLR cameras. Through interviews and photographs, the women dedicated the next few years of their lives to documenting the lives of Mexican-Americans and the challenges they face in achieving success in the US. Their interviews and images were compiled into the publication Abriendo Puertas.
