The students in the program were introduced to the principles of photography in collaboration with Akinbode Akinbiyi.

"...The student photographs presented here provide a glimpse into their young lives. We see the significant objects that surround them – toys, cars, clothes; the important people they interact with – family members and friends; the significant places – home, school, neighborhood; and the environment – landscapes, plants, animals which composes their daily lives.
Images Speak Words brings together young people and professional artists, an international Museum with the Western Addition neighborhood, and San Francisco with the African Diaspora
Special thanks to student parents and families, London Breed, Chantal Reynolds, and Samara Brown at AAACC, and MoAD intern Taylor Spitzer. ..."
