[caption id="attachment_47" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption=""Welcome to Pilsen" by Ruben Chavez, Spring 2011"][/caption] PAS Student and Mentorship participant, Ruben Chavez (Juarez Community Academy) was a recipient of this years Raw Voices Award in Experimental Photography. Ruben is a bad kid with dreams of becoming a doctor and moving to Canada so he can help people (but on the low, I hear he's producing some mighty popular t-shirt designs here in Pilsen)!
Ruben produced his award winning image during this past Spring's 2011 After School Matters program hosted here at PAS called "So, You Want To Take Pictures?".... and picture taking he did! So congratulations Ruben. We'll post a signature Ruben with winning photo and smile pic later so for now, embrace this young man's creativity!
