LEARN MORE ABOUT SANDRA:

Sandra was a participant in Venice Arts’ documentary project, Picturing Health in Southern Kern County. This is the fourth site in this eight-community project, sponsored by The California Endowment, which covers diverse areas of Southern and Central California. Sandra and the other teens in Southern Kern were exploring health issues affecting their lives: teen pregnancy; air quality, and related health issues such as asthma and unsafe parks. Many of the youth involved in this project knew teens that were pregnant or had already had children. Sandra’s beautiful photograph, “Mother and Child,” forms part of the story of teen pregnancy in Southern Kern County as seen through the eyes of youth.

About her experience working with Venice Arts, Sandra writes, “My time with Venice Arts was a great experience. I learned a lot about photography and how a photo is worth a million words like people say (I finally understand why). I also learned about light, composition and how different positions of taking a photo can make the photo look like something else. This also helped me learn more about my community and issues that are in the community, such as teen pregnancy and air pollution. It felt nice knowing that I got involved in my community.”
