We’ve been extremely busy over the last couple of weeks, since beginning the first ‘Photos Tell Stories: teaching photography – a visual language‘ – here in The Gambia, West Africa – the first one being a 4-day workshop, where our students produced some inspired work. And, we are just about to run out again to meet with those students, to present them with their ‘Certificates of Attendance’. However, we just wanted to share these images of a couple of yesterdays photography students, proudly showing off their certificates, from a 1-day workshop we held in the village of Kembujeh.

We have great images to share with you from the students, which we will upload soon. However, please bear with us as tomorrow we head up-country, to Farafenni and Soma, to hold more 1-day ‘Photos Tell Stories’  workshops.

Thanks for stopping by – please come back to see how well our Gambian photography students have been doing.
