AIR Introduction: Arleen Thaler

I’d like to introduce myself to the Genesee Center for the Arts and Education community, my name is Arleen Thaler and I am the new Photography Resident. For those of you who do not know me, I am a Rochester, NY based socially engaged photojournalist. As I begin my second year as the NW Team Leader for Flower City AmeriCorps, I will be sharing the work I do as a foot soldier helping to raise an awareness of poverty, homelessness, addiction and those issues our community struggles to find answers to. Through my lens, I use photography as a conduit to engage the community and elicit conversations that will hopefully create solutions. I look forward to working with friends new and old while sharing my passion, my vision and my heart work.
