100cameras

May 7, 2009

100cameras is simply to put cameras into the hands of peoples living in adverse conditions- utilizing photography as an outlet for individuals who have been victims of social, economic and racial injustice. The mission is to let the lens tell their story.

For the mission, cameras were taken to orphanages in Uganda and Sudan and given to children. After learning how to use a camera, their one task was to simply document their lives. They  used their personal camera to document where they sleep, what they ate, who they live with, details, homes, wherever they are so inclined to point a camera. For that one week, the camera was theirs. At the end of the week, the cameras were collected and images saved.

This project was taken to the children of Kampala, Uganda and Kajo Keji, Sudan where we teamed up with an orphanage from each city that  agreed to host the project and share their perspectives. The children’s photographs will be displayed and sold. 100% of proceeds from the sales will go back to the orphanages where the pictures were taken.
