Profiles - MCG Youth & Arts student photography exhibit.In December 2016, high school students at MCG Youth & Arts particpated in a three-day workshop with Xyza Cruz Bacani, an acclaimed international documentary photographer. Xyza grew up poor in the Philippines, and left home to work as a domestic worker in Hong Kong for nearly 10 years. At night she engaged in her love of photography, and was eventually discovered and featured in the New York Times.

During the workshop the students focused on intent, message, and storytelling, improving their photography by implementing sequencing and editing techniques. This exhibit features their work, including documentary photography from their personal world, as well as portrait photography shot on location at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild.

The exhibition runs from Friday, January 20 – April 14, 2017 at the Susan Zubik Welcome Center at Catholic Charities, 212 Ninth Street in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. The opening reception is on January 20th from 5:30 – 9:30 pm, in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Gallery Crawl.
