Empowering youth to openly document and discuss their perspectives, through photography.
Documentografía is an upcoming initiative of GPLXC, organized by Eduardo Cornejo, that will give youth a space to learn the fundamentals of photography and photography as an art form.
It is extremely important for youth to capture their perspectives of their neighborhoods and communities. Oftentimes, the media only portrays the crime on the Southwest Side of Chicago.
Documentografía aims to help shed light on the various amounts of unique sights, people, stories, and, culture in our neighborhoods by providing youth with the tools to develop their photography skills.
