Visual culture can be used as an instrument for social change. Our SE Program Associate, Laura Valencia ‘12 spent the summer of 2009 working for Toxic Free in North Carolina.

She researched the risks that pesticide exposure poses to migrant workers. Her picture documentary is posted on Photo Philanthropy. Also her video documentary is on the Toxic Free site. She won the 2009 student award from Photo Philanthropy! Congratulations, Laura!
