Event Description

Photographs are a glimpse of what may lie deep in the soul of a landscape, a seemingly everyday situation or a person. Good ones grab us by the imagination, they make us question, dream, think.  Perhaps that is why Fotos de mi Alma, a photographic odyssey capturing Latino life through the lenses of professional and amateur photographers is our most successful fundraiser for Latinitas.

This year, Fotos de mi Alma No. 8 ( place at IBC bank's new community space on W. 5th street in downtown Austin with a breath-taking balcony view overlooking Austin's burgeoning growth.  Cocktails and hor d'oeuvres will be served compliments of event sponsors' Glazer's fine spirts and Kurant Events catering.

Latinitas presents two special guests: Diego Huerta, ( international photographer and Carmen Marron, ( writer/director/producer whose new film "Endgame" hits theaters this month.

Established in 2002, Latinitas, a 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit organization, whose mission is to empower young Latinas through media and technology, has been a vital part of young Latina’s lives through after school programs, teen internships, Saturday and Summer camps, special events and the very first digital magazine for young Latinas – The bilingual magazine, written for and by young Latinas, provides a vehicle whereby these girls and young women not only see themselves positively reflected, but are also a part of the production.  Fotos de mi Alma No. 8 really reflects Latinitas' decade long reputation creating systemic change through many types of lenses - media to technology.
