Give a Child a Camera | V3 2018 | Uganda
I’m really pleased to announce that #Giveachildacamera returns for 2018, where I will be rolling the project out to a group of young vulnerable children on the border with Rwanda.
Give a child a camera is all about providing slightly different opportunties for children in East Africa.
After a little bit of tution the children, (who have not used cameras before) are given their cameras for around a week, where they document their lives in a fascinating fashion.
Purchase Beautiful prints of Africa – by the children of Uganda
Coming soon is the opportunity to purchase beautiful 14×11” prints from the children involved in #Giveachildacamera.
Finance raised from the sale of the images will go directly to the children/families involved in the project.

Rescheduled talk at Open in Norwich…
Thanks to those of you who had booked tickets to my talk in association with WEX photographic in January. Sadly, the talk was postponed and has now been rescheduled for 29th March – I hope to see you there
“Hear the story of how freelance photographer Julian Claxton discovered a small community school in rural Africa, where he fell in love with the children and went back to give them the gift of photography.
In a presentation interspersed with video clips, Julian talks about the project he set up, the benefits it gave to the local community, the journey the children have been on, and how more than fifty children went from never having held a camera to producing wonderfully emotive images of their lives.”
