What Is Our Mandate To Care For The Marginalized? Join us Sunday, October 15 at 10:00 AM for informative teaching, Q&A with Leah Denbok, and a display of Leah’s celebrated photography.
Leah is a 17-year-old resident of Collingwood, Ontario. For the past four years she has been mentored by Joel Sartore, a National Geographic photographer and Fellow. When Leah was just 13-years-old Joel said of Leah, “If she sticks with it, I think she’s well on her way to becoming not just a good photographer, but a great photographer, and I’m not kidding.” Since 2015 Leah has been focusing on portraiture, and, in particular, photographing the homeless. This past July Leah was the subject of a mini-documentary that aired on CBC’s ‘The National’. See: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=leah+denbok
Most recently she participated, at the Air Canada Centre, in WE Day and WE Family, which were both shown on CTV. This Fall Friesen Press will be publishing a book by Leah entitled Nowhere to Call Home—Photographs and Stories of the Homeless. To pre-order her book, contact Leah at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
