V3 is over – WHAT A PROJECT!

Give a Child a Camera 2018 has certainly been an emotional rollercoaster thus far.
Working with the inspirational children at the Uganda/Rwanda border has provided challenges, tears, smiles and some great imagery.

It’s always difficult meeting a group of kids for the first time, especially when they have come from such hard backgrounds.
A few of the children are HIV positive and many of them have mothers that are sex workers around the border town.

We started off with a couple of days of light workshops, talking about cameras, how to hold, use and the basic function, moving onto basic composition methods.

A day out to a waterfall and visitors centre was organised (the children had never left the town area) for some creative, blurred and fun imagery..accompanied by lunch and soda.

A rest couple of days followed, but a photo walk around the border was on The cards for one afternoon. Providing an insight into their lives on the border.

I’m eagerly awaiting the films to come back from Kampala this week ready for an editing session with the kids on friday…

Here are few special images from the last week
