Facing Change: Documenting DETROIT’s mission is to create a documentary record of Detroit by Detroit-area photographers, engaging local and global communities, through a Fellowship for Early-Career and Emerging Photographers, free community discussions hosting accomplished documentary photographers, and larger-than-life public art installations. Fellows must apply and be selected by a jury to participate, and are paired with professional editors, photographers, and curators from all over the world as mentors. Together their Fellows and Mentors build stories that are uniquely Detroit, where traditional journalism is missing. They then engage the public with these stories by bringing the work to public spaces throughout the community to connect, reflect, and be inspired by all they have accomplished within our city.
2017 Documenting DETROIT Fellows include:
Alexa Borromeo, Anthony Lanzilote, Corey Turner, Chris Asadian, Damon Adams, Erik Howard, Irum Ibrahim, Jeff Pearson, Jeremy Brockman, Junfu Han, LaToya Colts, Mishira Davis, Marisol Dorantes-Silva, Sal Rodriguez, Samantha Otto and Viviana Pernot.
