Kids with Cameras
(warning, embedded QT video in link)
With an Oscar Nominated
, under her belt, Zana Briski
's spinoff project,
Kids with Cameras, teaches children growing up in difficult circumstances the art and skills of photography to empower them to appreciate the beauty and dignity of their own expression.
With projects in Calcutta
, they send great photographers to lead workshops, the children are given inexpensive 35mm cameras to capture whatever they choose
and then the children's pictures
are shown (and sold
) around the world through exhibits, books and film.
