Inspired by a slideshow projection, in the classroom, of images of  ‘Home’ from our  contributing professional photographers (including Amy Toensing, Ben Lowy, Henry Jacobson, Manjari Sharma, Ryan Heffernan, Oskar Landi), the ‘Photos Tell Stories‘ students, from the Kombo area of The Gambia, were given their main assignment from photographer and tutor, Jason Florio: take the cameras away and photograph what ‘Home‘ means to them.

Each of them came back with some very well composed, inspired images – some literal, others not so. Following is a short edit of those images, from each of our students.
