With thanks, as always, to our main partners, the US Embassy, Banjul, we are delighted to host the forthcoming exhibition of around 60 prints (thanks to AdoramaPix, NY for their support) from our young Gambian  Photos Tell Stories photography workshop students.

Also, on the opening night, we’ll be projecting images from three other major West Africa projects – images by PTS’s tutor and award-winning photographer Jason Florio – from ‘River Gambia‘, (1044km source-sea African odyssey) ‘Silafando‘ (A Short Walk in the Gambian Bush), and ‘Makasutu – mecca in the forest‘:

We had some great support for Photos Tell Stories – all of whom made the inaugural photography workshops in The Gambia possible. So, with thanks to all our partners and contributors:

We also had some phenomenal  – and truly inspiring for our Gambian students –  images to share throughout all the workshops, thanks to a highly accomplished bunch of professional photographers:

During the opening night, we’ll be screening our short film from ‘River Gambia‘, footage taken during our 1044km source-sea journey – from the source of the mighty African river in the Fouta Djallon Highlands of Guinea-Conakry, into Senegal, and onto where the river meets the Atlantic Ocean in The Gambia.
