The Future's so Bright

In life I've learned something too good to be true always is, which is exactly why I'm so confused right now. A few months ago while photographing an event for 826 Michigan I was introduced to the head of Eastern Michigan University's Bright Futures, an enrichment center working with students in underserved communities.

A few days later we met at a cafe to discuss what Chin-Azzaro does... and ended up creating a photography class for the students.

Then cameras were bought and the time slot was appropriated. I met supervisors and instructors who were excited about the class and more than willing to help me out as I had never officially taught before. It all came together on what felt like a whim. The best part is everybody wins, especially the students.

Below is some of their amazing work.
