3 – 29 November 2009

Local photographer Elaine Stapleton spent 5 weeks earlier this year working with young children aged eight to 11 in six village schools in Tanzania. The children, who had never seen a camera before, were loaned digital cameras and taught how to take photographs. The project enabled them to tell their own stories by taking pictures of their friends and families and recording images of everyday life in their village. The resulting images are striking and uncontrived.
