Tara Bubriski just spent the past year in Madurai, South India where she used photography and storytelling in order to empower Dalit street children who had been displaced by the government. In April 2008 an exhibition of fifty photographs and the written respones by the Dalit street children was curated by Tara and hosted at the Gandhi Memorial Museum of Madurai, India. Tara believes that images, art, and creativity are important tools in order to resist dominant and oppressive ways of seeing and thinking about the world. Tara has also done photographic storytelling projects with pregnant teens in Bennington, Vermont, and the indigenous mountain community of Boruca, Costa Rica.
