See the world through their eyes! Children of the world tell their story with photographs.
My dream is to capture the world through the eyes of the children. I want to travel the world, hand children cameras, let them take picture, and build a collection of photos showing how they view the world around them.
Have you ever wondered how children in different parts of the planet see the world around them? I know I have! My dream is to capture the world through the eyes of the children. I want to see their daily lives the way they see it! I want to be exposed to their genuine creativity and to their unusual perspectives. And I want to share it with you!
To realize my dream, I want to hand out simple cameras to elementary-mid-school age children in various locations over the world. I want them to keep the cameras, in return for participating in a week long photography assignment. Their photos are what I want to share with you. My calculations show that with the $50K budget it is possible to get at least 100 children involved in different locations worldwide. I will be there to document them capturing the world.
How will I decide where to go? I will ask you! I intend to have an online space where I will be able to make the decisions jointly with all of you. I would already love to hear suggestions for places to go and interesting communities to visit. Please share your thoughts!
I envision the final outcome as a snapshot of our world through the eyes of the children. It will be online so anyone could access and see their stories.
