Teenagers in Albania display their views through photographs

In the past few weeks, teenagers in Albania have been attending photography workshops organized by ADRA Albania. Their view of their neighbourhood is displayed in a photography exhibition in Tirana, the capital of Albania.

The young photographers discovered their work and discussed their experience with their analogue cameras. After completing five workshops on different topics, the fifteen young photographers received an analogue camera and captured their daily life. 

The participatory photography project has invited teenagers from administrative units 4 and 8 in Tirana to develop their eyes for photography and critical sense through a camera lens. In a neighbourhood that is constantly changing and hit by gentrification, these teenagers were documenting their daily life as teenage inhabitants of this area.

Coming from vulnerable communities, they share their perception with the audience through photography and depict an environment in full mutation, showing us their living conditions.

Their works are now part of a Tulla – Culture Center photography exhibition on the 8th, 9th and 10th of November. 

 The ADRA Albania has organized this project in Qendra Komunitare Gonxhe Bojaxhi- Bashkia Tiranë. It is supported by the French Embassy in Albania, the EU Aid Volunteer program, and the UN Joint Programme ‘Leave No One Behind’, supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
