"Do You See What I See?" - Refugee children photograph their own lives

Food in the Kitchen: "All refugees have these traditional kitchens where they cook and make the food.They use traditional sticks made by ourselves to make our food. Most people don’t use stoves, we use Firewood to make our food and stones to help our pot to stand over the fire. Our kitchen is normally made of zinc plastic and sand even grass." © Manuel, 17 years old, Osire refugee camp, Namibia.

 

This picture is part of a UNHCR photography project, carried out with the assistance of a professional photographer Brendan Bannon. The project is entitled "Do you see what I see?", and gives refugee children the opportunity to learn how to use a camera and have the opportunity to give the world a vivid, emotional look into their lives.

 

"See refugee life through the voices and visions of children, who are experts on their own lives." B. Bannon
