Project Puerto Rico 2019
Working with Nonprofits
in collaboration with Leica Akademie USA
After our company co-founder returned from teaching this workshop in Puerto Rico, she was quoted as saying, “This was one of the most profoundly moving workshop experiences we have had in ten years of Momenta.” Nonprofit staff and our photographers documented incredible moments last October as they worked side by side to illustrate the dedication and passion of the people of Puerto Rico.
Momenta stands with its fellow citizens. As the people of the island continue on their path to recovery, Momenta and our team of photographers will be there to document their resilience and partake in the recovery. The nonprofits benefit from your brilliant photos by using them to tell their story to the world and you will learn real-world skills to documenting humanitarian issues.
You can be a force of change in Puerto Rico. On this inspirational workshop, you will be matched with a local nonprofit to create a powerful photo essay about their staff and all their efforts to fulfill their mission. We will have lectures, hands-on instruction, as well as daily one-on-one editing sessions. We will end our week together with a celebratory slideshow of the amazing nonprofits from your projects for the public!
