headersin turistas educates and gives voice to the individual through photography. sin turistas photographers engage the community in workshops or on their own in special projects. photographers explore the environment and collect stories through still photography and oral traditions. these images we create and collect have no power if they remain unseen. the greater goal is the expression of the sin turistas collection through exhibitions in creative and public spaces, online and short run print zines and a published photography journal. we hope to influence the construction of memory through the photography and the highland park archive being created. sin turistas photography workshops and collective is an outreach program of avenue 50 studio.

header 2sin turistas is a photography collective and workshops that meet in creative spaces. workshop participants and the collective members explore the city and its residents. we are an eclectic group of professionals, amateurs and fine art photographers. our four tenets of education, exploration, expression and memory are what we aspire to in each of our events and programs. currently, we are photographing and studying the effects of gentrification on highland park. though our project is social documentary in nature, activities include a variety of expression as a means to develop thoughts and ideas about our own photography. workshops include basic photography knowledge for beginners and all levels where we practise shooting skills and foster discussion about photography. the skills acquired through these programs are employed to illustrate the narrative of our social structure.
