Working Together: A Utah Portfolio
AN ORAL HISTORY INSTITUTE PHOTOGRAPH EXHIBIT
Working Together: A Utah Portfolio was a photo-documentary exhibit that was created from four years of documentary work conducted in Utah's Black, Greek, Jewish, Japanese, Mexican/Hispanic, Chinese, Italian, and Ute communities. Working Together grew out of the Oral History Institute's (OHI's) 'Ethnic and Minority Documentary project.' The purpose of the project (started in the spring of 1982) was to document the experiences, contributions, and life-styles of eight of Utah's ethnic and minority communities. Using oral histories and documentary photography by George Janecek and Kent Miles, OHI worked with the elderly of the state's above mentioned communities to preserve and present their experiences and contributions during the years 1920-1985. Working Together: A Utah Portfolio was the exhibit representing the efforts of the OHI and the communities and people of the state of Utah.
