Through intensive photography training courses, the Refocus Project equips marginalized Middle Eastern youth with cameras and the expertise to use them. Partnering with UNICEF, their most recent course for Iraqi and Syrian teenagers this summer focused on “raising awareness of rights, gender respect and integration.” In one lesson on constructing and communicating with images, the photographers used dolls as stand-ins for some revealing shots that couldn’t be easily, or safely, modeled by humans. |JPG|
