Mobile Photography Workshops with School
Thanks to smartphone camera technology, photography has become one of the most democratic forms of expression today, allowing people to communicate and share what is important to them and giving rise to new image making processes and new ways seeing.
Museo Camera in collabration with the Murthy Nayak Foundation and local NGO’s has been conducting specially curated workshops to teach Mobile Photography to school children from underprivileged backgrounds.
In these programs, students were given a mix of theory and practical lessons on Mobile Photography. Every student was provided with an iPhone to create photo stories and encouraged to develop their own unique photographic styles.
These workshops were not just limited to taking images but were oriented towards using the mobile phone camera to tell a story. Students were encouraged to engage with their subjects, to explore and create a dialogue with them and to articulate their experiences as thought provoking visuals.
