In January 2013, View Finder Workshop partnered with Respire Haiti to bring photography to restaveks and vulnerable children living in Gressier, Haiti. This film captures their week long journey of discovery, as they get to grips with using a camera and begin to explore new ways of seeing themselves and the world around them.

Visit viewfinderworkshop.org to see (and buy!) some of the children’s most striking images. With every print you purchase, you help us get one step closer to our next workshop with children living in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Thank you for all your support!

When we started out, we hoped the experience of looking through the lens of a camera would give these children a chance to express themselves in a new way, and empower them to see the world around them differently. The outcome was even more heartfelt than we could have imagined.
