Why do we empower women through photography?
- Photography as a means of expression:
Giving voices to women who are traditionally silenced, who are denied the chance to express emotions. We believe that women feel less fear and inhibition to start a conversation using the creative and powerful impact of photographs.
- Photography as a means of education:
Photography is a participatory process. Beyond taking a mere photograph, it involves learning to express opinions, to interpret and discuss images, to work as part of a group, to listen to others, etc.
- Photography as a means of economic empowerment:
In the long term, these women can act as freelance photographers and sell their photographs through Lensational.
