Over the years many people have tried to help make the rest of the world aware of the poverty faced by many children living in Africa. This project hopes to give them a voice by allowing them to document their environment and daily experience. Although in-experienced in photography their pictures will tell THEIR story.
Childrens smile is stronger than we think. Even when they are carrying a water container which was as tall as their height, they show us a bright smile. Happiness in those children may differ from those in adults. A photographer Young Joong Kim and priest Cha Poong realised this from children in Zambia while there were working on Cumca(dreaming camera) Project. Born in poor country might mean getting less benefit from modern conveniences but it does not mean unhappiness for them. Images from Why Cameras? Not Bread? are different from the images what we have known about African children.
"I have a dream, you too!!"
We wanted to meet the children in Zambia. See Africa through their eyes, subsequently sharing their experience. A camera is the medium that allows us to connect with the children for a mutually beneficial relationship that allows us to rediscover our dreams in the pictures that the children take.
