Kids With Cameras – See the World and Bring a Smile

Kids With Cameras is a very special project. Not just because the photographers are talented kids, but because these talented kids are children from the 3rd world.
So far, the project involved kids from Calcutta, Jerusalem, Cairo and Haiti. A movie made about this won the 77th Academy Awards Prise.
When I say that these kids are really talented, I mean it. Let’s take for example Shanti, 11 years old, lives with her brother, Manik and their mother in Calcutta. Zana Briski, her photography teacher in this project, held weekly photography workshops between 2000 and 2003. The children learned camera basics, lighting, composition, the development of point-of-view, editing, and sequencing for narrative.

By Laura

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
