Workshop This Weekend in Baltimore

Our Baltimore Photo Camp in November was a great success! We worked with a group of young Turkish refugees who are recent immigrants to the Baltimore community.

Our goal was to document the students’ experiences and perspectives as immigrants to Baltimore through photography and writing.

Our final story wove together the students’ view of several locations in Baltimore, as well as personal stories.

Students are all Meskhetian Turks, immigrants to the US from Russia and Turkey.  Get further information about this population.

These are the themes and questions that the students responded to, in words and photographs, through this project:

  • Describe your journey story to this community.
  • What is different for you here in the US?
  • What challenges have you faced as an immigrant to this community?
  • What are your hopes for the future?
