Photo Story of the Week

Every other week, we lend the kids a camera to bring home and take photos of their world. Last week, Mohammad A from El Ein refugee camp Nablus, took 470 photos – about five times as many as his peers. But the photos, far from being repetitive, showed great originality and creativity.
Mohammad has a brilliant sense of humour and brings a lot of laughter to class. This shines through in his photos too. Rather than just photographing what he sees around him, he created his own subject out of a piece of cactus, and went on to arrange it in different locations so that he could experiment with perspective and light to produce these distinct and memorable images.
