In this 9-session program, participants will use the medium of photography to explore issues surrounding social justice, with each participant ultimately creating a set of photographs that will communicate the importance and impact of social justice to the observer of their images. The participants’ photos will be exhibited as a group within Dominican Center.

People from all faith traditions are welcome and encouraged to attend. Likewise, any type of camera can be used for the course – digital SLR, point-and-shoot, cell phone camera, or polaroid – all are welcome. While there are no specific technical prerequisites to the program, photography fundamentals and basic camera use will not be covered. Therefore, a working knowledge of one’s camera is recommended.
