Life through the Lens Participatory Photography Project

The Life through the Lens Participatory Photography Project is organised by the UK registered charity Basti Ram (No:[masked]).

We want to arrange a meet up to come talk more about the project. Why not come meet other Londoners interested in photography and the team behind the project! The location isn't confirmed yet but it will mostly likely be in Stratford or Waterloo.

Our 'Life through the Lens' projects are 2 weeks in length. They combine teaching village primary school children with running photography workshops for boys living in a destitute children's home in India. To note there is a fee for this trip. We are currently recruiting more volunteers for the summer 'Life through the Lens: Participatory Photography Project (July 27th - 10th Aug 2013). This group will be a mix of UK & US Photographers!

Volunteers must have some knowledge/qualification of photography and enjoy working with children!

Take a look at our blog to know more about the project:

If you haven't already seen it, the link for a video made by one of our previous volunteers for the 2011 photography project can be viewed here,

Also don't forget to like our Facebook page and follow our Twitter page at for all the latest updates!

If you have any questions or would like to request more information and an application form then please email me at [masked]

Thank You,
