Photo exhibition by disabled Vietnamese in Germany

Face to Face is a photographic project for disabled people in Thanh Hoa province, which was organised in summer 2008 by the German Development Service Organisation (DED) and Schmitz Foundation, assisted by German senior photographer Paul Zetter.

After a five-month training course, 16 disabled people in Thanh Hoa used eight digital cameras to take more than 8000 photos about their communities. Several seminars were held during this time for trainees to exchange photographic techniques, communicate with each other and take photo together.

Ninety photos were chosen for exhibitions. A documentary was produced, describing the life of Huong, a disabled girl in Thanh Hoa, a member of this project. read more>>
