The training course.

 

Project Lives enrolled residents of the New York projects in a free 12-week workshop/training course.  Participants were given free single-use film cameras donated by Kodak and worked with laptops donated by Dell Computers.  Their weekly rolls of shot film were developed and printed by Duggal Visual Solutions of New York.  Classes were held for seniors, kids and preteens, and teens; other residents were of course busy at work or otherwise engaged during the afternoons.   Each week a different facet of photography was covered, which participants would then practice when roaming their housing developments and neighborhoods taking photos.  Topics included photographic inspiration, creating a narrative, objective documentary, subjective documentary, and those pictured below.
