An exhibition of new Photographic work, taken by young boys from a destitute boys home in Udaipur, India


Life through the lens is a Photography Course organised by charity Basti Ram to teach Photography in a destitute Boys home in Rajasthan, India.

The course aims to enable young boys to learn how to use digital cameras and capture their lives through the lens, to be able to show their environment and their emotions through Photography.

It is not only an influential and inspiring project for the boys (learning ways to be creative is such an extremely powerful and valuable tool) but it's also important for people in the UK to see these images.

So often, we see a Westerners view of deprived and destitute areas in the media and our opinions and representations of those places can often be inaccurate or negative.

To have the boys' own perception of their life and environment is not only beneficial to our understanding of place but, in this day and age, it's also critical to be able to relate to people from other backgrounds and to see their world authentically and as they see it themselves.
