    If you've seen the Academy Award-winning documentary Born into Brothels, you know the remarkable results that filmmaker Zana Briski achieved when she gave cameras to the children of prostitutes living in the red-light district of Calcutta. Inspired by Briski, who delivered the second Carr Lecture at the College last fall, David Schlenker '13 adopted a similar approach in his SEE-Beyond assignment this summer, made possible by a $4,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Interning with the nonprofit Project Why to teach English to fourth- and fifth-graders in South Delhi's Okhla slums, Schlenker--a history and international affairs dual major--decided to step it up a notch and simultaneously teach the essentials of photography.
