We successfully rebranded public housing and probation, and are now expanding the conversation around climate change.
Our work has been lauded by The New York Times, TIME, NPR, BuzzFeed, Politico, Slate, and other leading news channels.
Our programming has served thousands, earned participants thousands of dollars in stipends from NYC, and launched careers. The wait list numbers 500+.
Supporters of our projects include former president Jimmy Carter,
Supreme Court Justice
and Noam Chomsky.
Our PBS film was welcomed into over 200 festivals in 42 countries around the world, amassing 72 awards and 18 award nominations.
Our first book garnered multiple awards and placed as a finalist twice. Our second book will hopefully do likewise.
Our work has attracted fans across the political spectrum. We believe this is the most promising path to reform.
Seeing for Ourselves equips and trains marginalized individuals to take control of their own public narrative by documenting their lives photographically.
The practice is known as "participatory photography."
