The story, and the 60 black-and-white photographs that accompany it, is the fruit of a project carried out in the camp last summer by UNRWA and the Abaad Resource Center for Gender Equality.Some 180 photographs will be exhibited Thursday at Sanayeh Gardens, where Abaad and UNRWA will be handing out copies of three booklets. Each contains 60 black-and-white photos, accompanied by a fictional story penned by the young participants, who will be reading their narratives aloud. Photographer Dalia Khamissy conducted eight days of training with the young photographers over a period of four weeks. She taught them how to make and operate a pinhole camera, before sending them out to roam the narrow alleyways of the camp in search of images to use in a project focusing on discrimination and gender-based violence. Khamissy helped the participants develop the photos, and gave them tips and feedback.Thanks to the homemade cameras, many of the photographs are slightly blurred, and some are printed in negative, giving the project an artistic, ghostly feel.
