I was shot in Joburg started off as a community project in June 2009. The idea that started it all: "What I would like to propose for the project is using my photographic skills and talent and give of my time and resources to make a positive contribution to and enrich the lives of kids who might otherwise not have had the exposure nor the opportunity to develop their own photographic skills and talent. Teaching and enabling them to see the world through different eyes. Teaching them to look, to see, to compose, to capture what it is they see in a such a way that they can be proud of it."
I worked with a group of 15 students from Twilight Children, a shelter for street children in Hillbrow, Johannesburg. We met once a week on a Monday afternoon for a workshop. They will learn a new skill. We learned a new skill using disposable cameras. We learnt how to search for beauty, composition and interesting subject matter where we thought there were none.
