As a photographer, I strive to document the many different aspects of a culture. I also hope to leave behind a little drop of my knowledge with the children of the communities that I photograph by teaching them photography. My hope is that by capturing everyday life through photographs, the children will reaffirm their cultural identity and then they will come to appreciate their own cultures more fully.

For this project, MoPA ( and friends have donated 25 digital cameras, a printer and other photographic equipment.
