This exhibition highlighted the work of Saving Our Lives, Hear Our Thoughts (SOLHOT), an experience that aims to celebrate Black girlhood in all of its complexity. SOLHOT is not a mentoring program, it is a verb, it is political, it is not easy. 

In SOLHOT we use what we have to create what we need. Because digital photography is accessible, many of the photographs presented in the exhibition reflected a "snapshot aesthetic." The process was valued over the product and the method's simplicity promoted inclusion. Although the work is artistically vaulable, the action of making photographs is our primary concern.

See us.
