Southeastern Turkey

Project supported by KidsRainbow and GEGED and co-founded by Elisa Cappa Bava.

A 2 months course culminated with a final exhibition,  involving 12 Syrian children aged 9-13,  where photography was employed as a means for empowerement and self-discovery. Through visual education, storytelling and content creation, the children were invited to learn different ways of seeing the world around them and of capturing it through the camera lens, drawing their imagination together and forming compositions that embrace each other's visions, points of view and creativity, fostering mutual help and exchanges of ideas.
