Jumping on Water

Little Big Community
In 10th Grade our History teacher, Ms.Weir, presented us with a project that dealt with immigration. We had to express our experiences and perspective on the subject through one photo. My partner, Erick Rodriguez, and I went on a mission to best represent our disposition. Little did we know, our photo would be a part of The Way We See It: L.A. Teens on Immigration Photography Exhibit at the Skirball Museum in Los Angeles. Here’s what we wrote:
"Everyday you can go down to the Redondo Pier and see the small groups of fishermen consisting of the many ethnicities. The fishermen gather on a weekly basis to share stories of their family, life and catches. They enjoy each other’s company which is heard through their laughter. One of the fisherman said, “I take a break from my minimum wage work to come relax here.”
