Photojournalists of the Journalism 412 class concluded its Small Village New Mexico Project, Spring 2017, with a visit to the community of Doña Ana, the oldest in southern New Mexico that was established along El Camino Real.

This time of year always gets really busy, not just jam packed with schoolwork, but a bunch of photography requests, including graduation shoots. Being from Las Cruces, it is really easy to be accustomed to “knowing” everyone, but not actually know them.I met Gina in middle school, she is year older and I’d always see her around, but never talked to her.
