The Achromatic Garden
In 2000 SOMArts built a  darkroom space for the Sixth Street Photography workshop.  Jones, began teaching the advanced class, and went on to oversee the workshop entirely.  It was a practice of the workshop to have new students learning black and white film photography to begin by photographing SOMArts garden. Jones continued this practice as a way of evaluating each student as well as, help them develop a creative voice and, emotional insight.

This exhibition is a compilation of Sixth Street Photography Workshop members over the past twenty years. SOMArts also presents this as a photography archive of the garden Rene Yañez so lovingly looked after for so many years.
