The Fruits of our Labor, 2023
Within the storied walls of Ella Hill Hutch Community Center, a garden grows, nurtured with care and documented with love. These photographs open a window into a magical world where youth find sanctuary and nourishment of their own making. A haven from the streets and academic pressures. The slowly ripening strawberries, tendrils of sugar snap peas, long friendships all captured through the lens and careful eye of their peers. Scroll on to enjoy original photography and design by San Francisco high school students working at MoMagic with the support and mentorship of University of San Francisco community-engaged interns.
