Everyone sees and experiences losses through their own unique lens.

On May 14, teens joined together in a free, daylong photography workshop to find and express their views on life and loss, captured through the lens of a camera. They had the opportunity to connect with others, explore and photograph in the Cambridge community, and to use photo-enhancing software. 

Participants visited Community Art Center (CAC) and were guided by professional photographer Steve Osemwenkhae and CAC staff member Marlon Orozco through the use of photographic equipment and techniques.
