Since its inception images have been used to educate people about our world and advocate for social change where injustice prevails. Currently, activism does not end with images; they start foundations, fund non-profits and testify at the UN in order to find solutions for the issues they document. While not every photographer can travel the globe documenting injustice, this class is about finding ways to create change locally in our society by shooting in an artful documentary way. At the same time, the class will demand each student learn and follow the ethics that go along with the profession of social documentary work.

During this six-month course, participants will choose a social issue that they feel especially connected to in Los Angeles. The story can be a local, national or international issue but it must somehow be an accessible story to cover from Los Angeles. Possible issues may include global warming, homelessness, health, immigration, child labor, poverty, how gentrification affects those being pushed out of their own communities to name a few.

Students will discover multiple ways to present their stories, such as through the eyes of one person or multiple people including family and friends. In addition, Kevin will guide the class on how to come up with a story idea, how to pitch and again access to non-profits and NGO’s, how do develop a subject’s trust, how to tell a compelling story through photographs, and how to ultimately publish the work to help bring about change.

Throughout the class, Kevin will discuss working with non-profits and NGO’s, the importance of relationships, relief groups, publishing of books and fundraising for exhibits. Each student will be required to research and approach a organization(s) in the Los Angeles for his or her story. Open to all level of photographers interested in making a difference in today’s society.
