Develop your photography skills and practice your Spanish as you explore Argentine society and social issues.
Embark on a hands-on exploration of photojournalism in Argentina by learning about the fundamentals of photography and the art of storytelling through images. Experience digital photography classes and photojournalism workshops, go on photo shoots, and visit local galleries. Become acquainted with issues relevant to a local community and, using your own creativity and self-expression, choose a subject matter and social issue to document through photographs. After learning how to design your own pinhole camera under the guidance of an Argentine artist, you and your group conduct a series of photography workshops for schoolchildren in under-served communities.
