Here There, Acá Allá is an intergenerational photography workshop that brings together the first and second generations of participating Mexican-American immigrant families. The title refers to the dual experience of growing up and living between two cultures, using two languages and developing an enriched identity. Participants use 35mm film cameras to take photographs of their daily lives, family relationships and social structure, among other subjects. Photography acts as a platform for exchanging points of views, sharing feelings and exploring cultural identities. The images and audio presented on this online exhibition are not only a cross-section of the children and parents’ work, but also a window that looks into the joys and struggles of being a Mexican-American immigrant family in the U.S. Photographs and conversations coalesce to bridge the gap between two generations and two cultures.
