Curated by photographer Fernando Delgado, Eye Am the Photography Project is a community initiative that has been warmly embraced by the Reginald Chavez Elementary School administration. The project is funded through a Horizons Grant through the APS Education Foundation and with the generous support of Carr Imaging and Oasis Albuquerque.

The camera is the instrument of expression each student uses to document life as they see it. This exhibition celebrates and affirms the diverse culture and heritage of this special place we call home.

Photography Project leaders are Fernando Delgado, a professional photographer; Loretta Huerta, principal at Reginald Chavez; Tanya Sena, art instructor at Reginald Chavez;  and Katherine Irish, school counselor.

This project was conceived to teach students the key principles of photography as an art form. Fernando and Tanya communicated the notion of using the camera as an expressive tool to document our roots, culture and environment. In the process, the students learned the difference between a “photograph” and “an image” and the importance of “making” images instead of simply “taking” images. All of the images on exhibition will be accompanied by a short essay written by each student.

This project and culminating exhibition celebrates the visual arts as a means of individual expression as well as a viable and meaningful career path for our students.
