Antoinette Douglas-Hall was born in the U.K. to West Indian parents. Growing up, her passion for photography led her to gain a B.A. Hons in Photography. She then made her way to the U.S., starting in San Francisco, onto New York City, and back to San Francisco again.
Her work in photography has allowed her to work with all kinds of people and travel to many different places, from St. Louis to Mumbai.
For the past year, Antoinette has participated in a youth mentorship program called First Exposure, based out of a gallery called SF CameraWorks. Here, she works one-on-one with youth interested in photography.
She mentors a 16-year old girl through digital photography, providing support and tools for creative expression as together they learn about each other and photography. This work allows Antoinette to share her knowledge and love of photography and provide consistent support to a child’s personal growth and creative pursuits. She loves it.
Antoinette was excited to go to Ethiopia to have a chance for adventure, culture, and to reach out to women and their community to contribute a meaningful spark of change.
