"ph15: Eyes of the Hidden City"
2005-02-16 until 2005-03-19
Sorenson Center for the Arts at Babson College
South Babson Park, MA, USA United States of America

The Sorenson Center for the Arts at Babson College is proud to present "Eyes of the Hidden City" a show of artwork from the photography collective, ph15, from February 16th through March 19th, 2005. ph15 is a workshop that puts cameras in the hands of teenagers from some of the most violent and impoverished barrios in Buenos Aires, Argentina: Villa Number 15, so-called "Ciudad Oculta" (Hidden City). ph15 is a space for creativity and self-expression through photography that gives children the opportunity to express their own viewpoints about their surroundings.

The project began in 2000 when photographer, Martin Rosenthal, met a group of kids from the barrio who wanted to learn photography. The group meets every Saturday at the Conviven Youth Center run by Valmir S. Vieira. Martin Rosenthal and Moira Rubio lead the workshop with the collaboration of voluntary teachers Miriam Priotti, Pablo Altuve and Luciano Casalla.

ph15 workshop activities are aimed at enhancing photographic creativity. By learning how to look at and show the different realities in their lives, both individually and in groups, the teenagers are taught to fully explore their surroundings and express their own viewpoint with a unique perspective. Through attention to creativity and artistic quality, the workshop provides a venue for developing identity that contributes to improving the children‚s social and cultural conditions. It helps them to take ownership in the place where they live, to discover new places and interact with the environment. The children document their everyday lives in a spontaneous and free way that gives artistic expression and visibility to their marginalized identities.
