Camera: Innova 6x9 pinhole
Film: Kodak Ektar 100
In pinhole-related news I am taking part in a humanitarian project this June where I will be traveling to southern Turkey to work with Syrian refugee children teaching them art, specifically pinhole photography. The program aims to work with high-risk youth who, due to being displaced by political violence in their home country, have lost anywhere from 1-2 years worth of schooling, threatening to affect their development for the rest of their lives. The project is run through the Zeitouna Program which itself is part of the larger Karam Foundation, a humanitarian agency that works with Syrian refugees and displaced persons. It stands to be a very challenging, stressful but extremely rewarding endeavor. As the project is voluntary, I have launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for travel, materials and other supplies for the classes I will teach.

All the little contributions really do add up and I am thankful for all the helped received.
