Eyes on Main Street Inc

Reportage Grant - Year Three

Eyes on Main Street Inc is delighted to share the news that Rachel, Wisniewski, USA, and Irene Barlian, Indonesia, are both a recipient of a Reportage Grant.

-Rachel Wisniewski will work around her Jewish identity and her project "Soon, It Will Be You", where she will document the experience and pressure of coming-of-age as a Jewish person by focusing on a specifically Jewish American coming-of-age ritual: sleep-away camp.


-Irene Barlian will work around her project "Land of the Sea", a story about climate change at the northern coast of Java, Indonesia, through the unique perspective of the community that resides along the region. The majority of the 95.181 km (60,000 miles) of the coastlines in Indonesia are on the brink of inundation with the constant peril of rising sea levels.
