Imagine children as young as 6-years-old running in and out of traffic in the street, trying to sell a piece of gum, wash a windshield, or juggle oranges for change. They lack education, suffer from malnutrition, and are surrounded by a world of danger and loneliness.
Now imagine it is your job to tell the whole world who these children are. To breath light into an existence too few know about. That’s the critical role photographers working with non-profits and NGO’s play. It is exactly what you’ll be tasked with if you join the next Truth With A Camera workshop in Quito, Ecuador, January 9-17th.
As with all TWAC workshops, students will be joined by their colleagues in-country to document stories surrounding issues of need that NGOs battle every day. Led by world class instructors who specialize in caused based photojournalism, the students will spend an intense week making a difference in this world frame by frame.
Friends will be made, tears will be shed, students will stretch the limits of their capabilities and, most importantly, good will be done.
