Tyler Bastian met an incredible man, Agustin, five years ago. This encounter led to the decision to make a film about Agustin’s life with Trevor Hill and Tim Skousen.

At the Media Workshop on Thursday was the launch party for the exhibition Free Time. It’s simple, but I can’t think of a better title. With the free time volunteers had, they went to different locations to photograph other volunteers who were in turn giving up their free time for a cause.

The photos below are the fruits of labour of the Media Workshop staff and volunteers.
