Street Sense Media photographers share stories of our communities. Searching “homeless” online returns photos of homeless people – we aim to showcase photos by homeless people. A bi-weekly workshop trains participants in the technical operation of a camera, how to choose a composition and how to develop strong concepts.

The group contributes to our print and online news gathering, and as well as documenting the work of our media center.
