Eleuterio Martinez Ramirez: Doc Photo Exhibit

October 24, 2017

During the summer, dozens of Skidmore students undertake internships and other opportunities to advance their academic and other interests off campus. In summer 2017, the Megan McAdams-Roldán '08 award for International Community Service, which encourages students to recognize "the value of participating in a summer community service project abroad, " went for the first time to fund a homecoming 'abroad.' Eleuterio Martínez Ramírez applied for and was awarded funds to return to his home community in Mexico to begin to share the skills he had developed in Saratoga Springs as a photographer, physics major, and Storytellers' Institute Student Fellow, with a new generation as he taught a photography workshop. Find out about Ele's experience in Oaxaca in his own words (watch video) and see some of his students' work below. Ele created a photography exhibit entitled Ventana a Mi Comunidad (Window On My Community) of the photographs taken by his students. The exhibit was displayed in Case Gallery at Skidmore College, from September 29 - October 6, 2017.
