About the Project

The 2010 LtmP Adiyaman project was hosted in conjunction with Learning Enterprises, an education non-profit dedicated to teaching English around the world. Following language lessons in the morning, two groups of primary and secondary school students met every other day to learn the basics of framing, light, and perspective before venturing into the city to photographically document their lives.

The students’ work was displayed at a George Washington University library show in the Spring of 2011.
