A group of teens in Los Angeles took cameras to tell stories of immigrants in America. For some students of first-generation immigrant families, this meant looking inward.

The project, funded by the non-profit group Facing History and Ourselves, is now hanging in the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. Host Scott Simon talks with the high school photographers about the exhibit, titled "The Way We See It: L.A. Teens on Immigration."
