A photography exhibit titled “A Visual History of Latino Students at the University of Kentucky, 1865-2019” will be on display at WT Young Library at the University of Kentucky this fall. Curated by University of Kentucky undergraduate student Daniela Gamez Salgado, this collection of archival and contemporary photography presents visual evidence of important firsts in the history of Latino students at the university. The photos chosen for this exhibit focus on individual student experiences and collective student action, while also celebrating the diversity of experiences and identities encompassed by students of Latin American descent at the university. Commenting on the exhibit, curator Daniela Gamez Salgado states: “As the first official collection of the history of Latino students at the University of Kentucky, this exhibit helps us better understand and analyze the changing needs of this historically underserved community and encourages us all to rethink what it means to be a Wildcat.”
The exhibit will be located in the Rose Street entrance to the WT Young Library and can be viewed during regular library hours between September 16th and November 1st, 2019. An online image gallery from the exhibit can be viewed at https://uknowledge.uky.edu/latino_student_history/
In honor of the exhibit, University of Kentucky alum and former Director of the UK Martin Luther King Center Ricardo Nazario y Colón will give a lecture titled “Beyond the Cosmic Race: Latinequis in the United States”. The lecture, with reception to follow, will be held on October 10th from 4:00pm to 5:30pm at the Gatton Student Center, room 331.
The exhibit, lecture, and reception are sponsored by University of Kentucky Libraries, Department of Hispanic Studies, College of Arts & Sciences Year of Equity Program, UK Martin Luther King Center, and Latino Student Union.

Don't Be Fooled, Household Items Can Be Used As Film Developers.
I have been doing a lot of research on whether household items can actually be used for developing film or not. There is a large debate on this topic for alternative process photographers. Below is an article written by Roger K. Bunting, who argues that you can use Coffee, Tea, or Vitamin C in the Darkroom, to successfully develop film. Soon I will be putting this to the test, and will post any results from the instructions below. Stay posted.

I went to London, England; as some of you may already know.
I’m speaking in past tense, since I was not able to create blogs in London when I was actually there. This is because they are behind America when it comes to most technologies by 2 years approximately, as said from experience of using their Wi-Fi and being told by their advertising agencies.
Anyhow, I studied in the UK so that I could expand my knowledge in global advertising, and purely just to use my passport, finally for the first time in my life. London was the perfect place to go, to be immersed into the world of advertising and business; being home to many award winning advertising agencies such as DDB (having clients such as Volkswagen, Harvey Nichols, Marmite; also claimed to be the start of creative advertising), and McCann Erickson (whom are creating all work for the upcoming Olympics campaign). However, London was not the best place to travel for a first experience of being out of the country, only because it’s really not that different or shocking, aside from the accents and driving on the wrong side of the road.
Just a Photo a Day!!!
I (as well as many many many others) have began participating in the 365 Project this year. It is a great opportunity to grow as a photographer as it encourages you to keep your "lens" up all the time and see the world in a different way. It also forces you to be resourceful an take creative pictures in less "photogenic" situations. you can join the website dedicated to the project at : http://365project.org/ or just do it on your own accord! the important thing is to keep with it even if you have to whip out the smartphone!
