Gallery Show Field Trip

February 21, 2020 @ 4:45 pm - 7:45 pm

Twenty of our SDRT students are in a Gallery Show (DETAILS BELOW) and we’d love for you to join us!
We’ll need at least a handful of tutors to eat dinner with our students at Ibarra before driving over to the gallery together.

Can’t make it to Ibarra but are able to check out the show in City Heights later that evening? Find the details of the art show & RSVP here.

Outside The Lens presents ‘Where The Light Travels: Portraits of San Diego Refugee Students’ – a collection of collaborative portraiture and audio interviews. Each individual in this exhibition is the face of a wider story – the story of their journey, family, resilience, and joy.

The medium of large format was more commonly used during a time when photography was less accessible and less democratic. An aim of this project was to subvert that context and use this format to photograph an often overlooked and marginalized community. The time and care needed for each shot on a large format camera, with its intricate and antiquated handling, is a way to honor these incredible young people and help to bring attention to themselves and their stories.

In partnership with the San Diego Refugee Tutoring program.

All images shot on a 4×5 large format film camera by Outside the Lens Teaching Artist and Photographer Jana McBeath.
