2014 the children started without me. When I left the previous year, they got a couple of cameras with their teacher Mr. Nawang Thardot and busy they photographed through the winter. When I returned in June 2014, I was delighted to see so many great photos. I just checked on these as well as I had interviews with a couple of girls and left with leaving again cameras there.
So when I returned in September, I already knew that it would it be my last time working with the children. They had done nearly all of the photography needed to fill numerous books and I was very confident to leave them alone continueing the photography with their teacher. But we had the big duty to get text-content for the books and so we had lots of talks, recorded songs, wrote essays etc. Still it is little difficult for them to understand what outsiders don’t know and find interessting about their culture and lifestyle and that their infos really can be of help. For the goodbye we did a last phototrip to Tahan, Phey and Sani. In the end I felt really sad as they had grown closer to me especially through their photos as they are aware I guess. But I think meeting me and being part of the Kamerakidz-project is also something they will remember. So I am sure we stay in contact and I am already curious what future will bring.
