The following articles represent a collaborative process, as does the project that we will discuss. It is not within the scope of these articles to engage in an in depth examination of community photography. This practice and its relationship to high art, cultural production and representation has been the topic of other very interesting investigations. We will instead focus on a possible relationship between community photography and the higher education curriculum, wherein each project facilitates the other. The first article represents my view of the pedagogical foundations of this relationship as the instructor and a participant in this process. The second article will speak from a student/participant's perspective, about the actual process and results of this particular class project.
