Project FOMU (Photo Museum Antwerp) & Red Cross

During the summer months of 2016, FOMU organised an intensive photography program, in cooperation with 4 Red Cross refugee centers. 12 residents worked with digital cameras, smartphones, analog disposable cameras and polaroids in order to explore 'This is me'.

Concepts such as identity, home and society are central, but above all, the pleasure of photographing prevails. The profile of the participants differs greatly: women and men, young people and the elderly, also their country of origin is rarely the same.

The workshops were guided by Gideon Hakker and myself.

The results were exhibited as part of Braakland in November 2016.
