How I See It: My Place – Stories in the Sand

How I See It — My Place is a documentary writing and photography project for teens. It was developed by the California Council for the Humanities (CCH) and supported by the California State Library. The project was designed to engage young people in thinking in new ways about the communities in which they live. Participants actively explored their surroundings and documented their observations through digital photography and writing. They also conducted additional research and shared their discoveries about local history, environment and culture with peers and community members through exhibits and public events.

The following gallery links are photos taken by Ridgecrest teens who participated in the original 2008 CCH-funded project, and two additional projects in 2009 and 2010 supported by the Friends of the Library:
