Photo Camp India brought together 20 students from rural and urban areas in Rajasthan, a northwestern state in India. The camp was staffed by Ed Kashi, Jim Webb, Sadie Quarrier and Lindsay McCullough, and was presented in partnership with Sanjhi, an NGO out of Udaipur, India.
The students photographed the rural and urban communities’ relationships to the environment, learning about and experiencing the effects of deforestation, sustainability and solid waste removal.
Together, the students created a photographic story that shows their passion for making their communities, and the world, a healthier and greener place to live.
Students will also have the opportunity to continue their relationship with Sanjhi, as environmental activists and photographers, made possible by a camera and curriculum donation for a leave-behind program. Digital SLR cameras were provided through a generous donation by Olympus Imaging. Stay tuned for updates on the how the program is doing.
