good shit- i'd definitely like to see more, please put all those pictures in one post though, there are only 20 posts to a page and when everyone puts one image in a post a lot of images get lost in backpages pretty quickly. the more images a page, the better.

 

i really like the tree and the worried/bored people at the station.

 

Here are some more images from my students out in the burbs.

Little kids get paid pittances to scrape the mud off of the trucks here. Its still the rainy season.

It is so much easier for kids/teenagers to run up on someone and take a picture. and to think, we fret/talk about how hard it is frequently, and they don't even think twice about shoving a camera in a stranger's face.

Love the shot of the dogs, perfect timing with the ears up, what country? Im asuming South America??

 

I tend to go for single shot posts, so when people quote them, theres not loads of shots repeated, but yeah I see your point, will do that on this thread.

 

The station pic is Jaipur bus station, shot from the hip to avoid sticking a camera in a strangers face, Im way to old to get away with that.

^they are aren't they? im in the midst of a bureaucratic nightmare right now - so i got a grant for the cameras and my pay and all that to do this, and the organization was not happy at allllll with the product, and have been going back into the files and pulling out photos of muchhh worse quality. they wanna do an exhibition of photos that show 'windows of peace'. so they chose kids posing in front of their homework, smiling etc. instead of the photos that i've been showing here, which are much stronger images in my opinion (and if i allow myself to be arrogant, i know a little bit more about this sort of thing than a social worker).

 

done venting - i wish these kids had internet/computers/cameras/knew english so they could get on here and contribute, that would be sooo dope if we had 30 kids from the panamanian hood posting daily in the days in pies thread. oh well. (ps, the organization took the cameras back, none of these kids got cameras now), kinda bullshit.

That is fucking bullshit.

 

Do a blog for them or something. Post the real shit. I bet at least one or two them could go on do something with right inspiration and tools.

 

I'd be down to contribute some money to send those kids cameras if there was a way they could get them to you to post or something.

 

What kind of fucking organization does shit like that? Don't put them on blast since you are involved, but they should be giving them one computer(a cheap one will do) or asking people to donate their old crap and let them keep them cameras. You don't take candy from a kid who's never had it.. ya know..?

This sounds awesome, minus the fact that they don't like the good stuff. Like other people have said, you should take the strong images and do something with them like a blog or something where the pictures can be seen, that's important!

People generally have shit taste, I design websites for 3 Hospitals and these department head douches always try to turn the site into a boring ass online brochure. Try to engage them asking them why they chose what they chose and then use that to point out what they might be overlooking. The problem is they know their customers/clients way better than you, but you understand your field way better than them.

 

They don't have any professional experience or knowledge in these matters and don't want to think too hard about it. They may ask their nephew who sucks but owns a camera and go with their opinion on shit. If you can engage them the right way under the right circumstances you may be able to show them how studying your specific field for years could benefit them more and why they aren't getting their moneys worth. People skills are huge part of my skill set now having to deal with PHD's who "know best" and then helping them "know better".
