Capturing Belief photographers visited Wayne County 3rd Circuit Court Judge Prentis Edwards Jr. at Frank Murphy Hall of Justice in Detroit. This trip was meant to inspire and expand the young photographers’ minds by introducing them to potential job opportunities and futures in the industry. Judge Prentis Edwards Jr. born and raised in Detroit grew up in a household of judges and attorneys. “My father was a judge and growing up he was someone I always looked up to. I knew it was something I’d eventually do,” said Judge Prentis Edwards Jr. The young Capturing Belief photographers sat in the judge’s chair, saw his chambers, asked questions about different laws and jobs in the court room and made portraits of Judge Edwards Jr. This is a space that young people can occupy in a positive way when they move forward imaging their futures. Thank you, Honorable Judge Prentis Edwards Jr. for showing us around and for your time sharing with us about your journey.

Capturing Belief, @sayplaydetroit and @insidesouthwest are Celebrating Community Ford grant finalists! We invite the community, friends and fellow photographers to learn more about our project by attending the pitch session at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 30, 2019 at @factorycorktown at 1907 Michigan Avenue Detroit, MI 48216. The community will get the chance to vote for three organizations who make a pitch at the event. Our neighborhood is changing quickly and you have an opportunity to vote for programs that are most important to your. This grant would allow us to mentor 20 young photographers from Hubbard Richard, Corktown and North Corktown for a year. The young photographers would be researching the history of their neighborhood, documenting its present and thinking about what they envision for its future. Their work will culminate in a series of outdoor exhibitions in the community throughout the year. We hope that you come out and support Capturing Belief and Inside Southwest Detroit.
