Our second annual Photo Camp for Haitian Youth is July 19-28, 2012!
This year we are expanding with 50 young photography students from Cité Soleil and Jacmel who will learn and work together for 10 days along with volunteer professional photographers, supporters, and Haitian staff to shoot, edit, produce, print, and then design and hang a huge photo show for a month long exhibit.
Please consider making a donation to this epic teaching and exhibit event and help us reach our fundraising goal of $8,500.00! Every little bit helps and we can't do it without you!

His excellency President Michel Martelly and his wife visit Jacmel, Haiti, in July 2011. Our amazing star student Fedno Lubin captured this great moment with Georges Metellus, director of ACFFC, and another of our students, Jouvens Lauture (center), on deadline the day before our show last year. It was printed and up on the wall for our opening night exhibition.
