Lens on Life Project
Jun 22, 2017 — Aug 25, 2017
Benrubi Gallery is proud to present "Lens on Life Project",
a photographic project organized by brothers Sam and Jack Powers. In 2016, the Powerses led a week-long photography workshop entitled Operation Goma in North Kivu, one of the most volatile provinces in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Powers brothers traveled to North Kivu at the behest of Camme, a Congolese non-profit organization “providing education, entrepreneurship, and social services and life skills for children” in the DRC. Their goal was to provide a setting in which vulnerable young people could both share their stories and gain a new skill to enter the global marketplace. All proceeds from the exhibition will go directly to Camme, for the construction of a media building where workshops on photography and computer literacy will be held.
