About the Photograph:
“In the summer of 2008, I interned at the now defunct Rocky Mountain News in Denver, Colorado. This image was part of a project the paper was persuing documenting the growth of a local prepratory school for low-income Hispanic students. Each morning the students would line up to go to class in the expanded wing of the cafeteria. The cafeteria used to end at the carpet, but now each morning beautiful light would cascade into this new room through slitted windows. The administrators were very strict at this school, and despite the lack of freedom the students were given they excelled to be one of the highest ranked middle schools in the county.”
