We are getting nearer to setting a date for the Photos Tell Stories photography workshops students exhibition, here in The Gambia. We want to welcome on board – and give huge thanks to to one of our local photography stores – AdoramaPix, in New York, for partnering with us – the shipment of prints is on route to West Africa!
Here is a taster of the fine work we’ll be exhibiting, from our Gambian students:
We also want to thank all our other partners and contributors– all of whom have helped to get to where we are now: US Embassy, Banjul, The Gambia; FujiFilm, USA; powerHouse Books, USA; Gambia Experience, UK; Foto Care, USA; Protronica Ltd, UK; Jekkah – African inspired clothing, The Gambia; Qcell, The Gambia. And, a whole list of phenomenal contributing photographers: Manjari Sharma; Amber Terranova; Amy Toensing; Sari Goodfriend; Ryan Heffernan; Ben Lowy; Stefan Falke; Oskar Landi; Thomas Donley; Brandon Remler; Wayne Lawrence; Chris Bartlett; Robert Goldstein; Henry Jacobson; Heloise Bergman.
This week, we hope to visit a central venue which will be perfect for the exhibition and event night – where we will be able not to exhibit the prints, but also show a slideshow of images, on a big screen, from all the work produced during the workshops we held here in The Gambia; along with Jason Florio’s work from our two West Africa expeditions.
