Gambia ‘Photos Tell Stories’ exhibition opens this Friday, 16th May – Photographs of The Gambia by Gambians…

…along with images from Photos Tell Stories photography workshop tutor and award-winning photographer, Jason Florio


We have less than five days to go until the opening night of ‘Photos Tell Stories – photographs of The Gambia by Gambians‘ exhibition opens at Alliance Française, here in The Gambia, West Africa: Friday 16th May, 2014 – 6-9pm.

We picked up the prints at the weekend – thanks to AdoramaPix, NYC, for a their support and a great print job! – one image from each of our young Gambian photography workshop students (we’ll be showing a slideshow of the rest of their work, plus some behind-the-scenes shots of Jason Florio teaching the students). A sneak preview of just one of 60 inspiring exhibition prints, from our students – most of whom had never used a camera before…

During the opening night,  we will also be projecting, on the above big screen in the amphiteatre at AF,  Jason Florio’s images from our West Africa journeys, as well as showing our ‘River Gambia’ short film; taken from footage Jason and I both shot whilst on the 1044km source-sea expedition, 2012-13.
