Nemo Design presents Shayla Hason's Hope is a Muscle: Photos from the Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls exhibit opening on Friday, June 06, 2008. The show will run through Tuesday, July 01, 2008 at Nemo Design: 1875 SE Belmont Street in Portland, OR. "It has been a great honor to watch the camp grow, and with every session to see the girls gain knowledge, confidence and strength in a single week.
As a documentary photographer, I am most interested in the small, sublime moments at camp and the interactions between the girls in the days leading up to the showcase," said Hason, who has been taking photographs at the Rock n Roll Camp for Girls since 2001, the second year of its existence. The Rock'n'Roll Camp for Girls, a 501(c)3 non-profit, builds girls self-esteem through music creation and performance. Providing workshops and technical training, we create leadership opportunities, cultivate a supportive community of peers and mentors, and encourage social change and the development of life skills.
