Initiated in 2003, the Latino Photography Project was initially conceived to empower Latina women living on ranches in West Marin, California, equipping them with essential literacy, photography, and computer skills. Filmmaker Alejandro Palacios, who relocated to the area nearly a decade ago, stumbled upon this remarkable group and embarked on capturing its profound impact.

Alejandro Palacios shared his motivation, stating, “This project opened doors for individuals who typically wouldn’t have access to learning or showcasing their art in gallery spaces. As an immigrant and an artist within this community, I strongly resonated with their stories. It was imperative for me to delve deeper into the lives of these passionate and resilient photographers, and create a film that conveys their powerful message.”
