As part of our mission to tell the stories of Milwaukee’s central city residents, Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service is seeking community members 18 or older who would like to photograph their lives and neighborhoods.
Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service's community photography feature was launched with the help of a successful crowd-funding campaign conducted by Marquette University students. Four cameras are lent to community members from different neighborhoods to document their lives. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
