Location Pinpoint & Sandlfy, GA (near Savannah)
limited 8-10 students
Pinpoint and Sandfly are historic African American small-town communities near Savannah, Georgia, currently at risk from regional growth and development pressures. Georgia Conservancy works to protect these and other threatened communities throughout Georgia through their Blueprints for Successful Communities Program. Accomplished documentary and editorial photographer JD Scott works with students in real world assignment settings with community leaders and other residents to create meaningful photographic images that tell the story of people and place. These photographs will record and preserve the cultural heritage of Pinpoint and Sandfly, many of whose residents trace their ancestry through Georgia’s coastal Gullah/Gechee culture. Students’ photographs may be selected to be used by Georgia Conservancy to advocate for the protection of these communities or in a documentary photography exhibit. This is an SPC “Eye on the World” workshop.
