A 2011 Yearbook

December 12th, 2011

We’re excited for you to see the slideshow that was put together for our wrap-up event. You’ll get a look at our classes in action, our local volunteers (the best translators ever!), and most importantly, you’ll get to meet our students!

A huge thank-you to Oscar Leon for putting this together! He did such a great job.

Thanks to every one of our friends and supporters. Thank you for helping to make this happen!

ONE-SHOT – 2011 Workshop Iraq from Heber Vega on Vimeo.

What do you get when you mix Iraqi students and volunteers from four continents with donated digital cameras, classes and photo walks? You get a set of remarkable images, three months of fun, and a lifetime of memories.

The ONE-SHOT Project staged it’s first workshop in the fall of 2011, in Sulaymaniyah, northern Iraq. The volunteers brought instruction in photography. The students brought an incredible eagerness to learn. And together they all learned a different way to see the world.

Photography: Heber Vega and ONE-SHOT Students.
Production: Oscar Leon.
