Critical Exposure Presents - 5000 Images : A Celebration & Retrospective
I had the privilege of attending the opening of Critical Exposures, 5000 Images gallery at the Edison Place gallery in NW DC.
About Critical Exposure
Critical Exposure teaches youth to use the power of photography and their own voices to become effective advocates for school reform and social change.
The organization was founded in 2004 by a former educator and an education policy analyst in response to the drastic disparities that exist among public schools.
By empowering young people to develop skills as documentary photographers and advocates, we expose citizens and policymakers to the realities of our current two-tiered education system as seen through the eyes of the students who confront those realities each day.
To see the predicament of DC schools & everyday life through the eyes of the students is truly an amazing thing. If you didn't get a chance to see it in person, hunt it down!
Here are some photos I took of the event.
