The 300-page book consists of photographs, poetry, and prose by thirteen “at risk” students who participated in a two-week intensive photographic workshop Levy taught in January 2014 at GATE (Government Assisted Technology Endevour). Four months later, Levy returned to Antigua with writing instructor and publisher Robert Colley of Standing Stone Books, who inspired the students to write pieces related to their life and work.
