FLIGHT Photo Project
Ten immigrants and refugees from Myanmar, Iran, Iraq, Thailand, and Afghanistan documented their experiences settling into life in Canada as part of the FLIGHT Photo Project. Cameras4Change (C4C) collaborated with local organisations, including MOSAIC, on this participatory photo project which provided participants with cameras and training to document their first thoughts and interpretations of Canada. From the images taken, participants selected their favourite photos and wrote descriptions to go alongside each. The chosen images were then printed and exhibited this spring in a Chinatown gallery in downtown Vancouver.
A selection of photos from the exhibit are displayed below and more information about the project can be found here on the Cameras4Change website:http://cameras4change.com/
