The World Through My Eyes
Photographs by young Mozambicans.
The Professional Photographers of America were very interested in our project and the work we are doing in Mozambique so they asked to write a story about our project. You can read the article they wrote for the September 2004 issue of their monthly magazine, Professional Photographer, by clicking here.
Note: To clarify, The World Through My Eyes was accepted by the non-profit umbrella organization “Perception” and not “Sustainable Resources” as written in the story.
Our project was featured in the June 2004 issue of one of Portland, Oregon's community newspapers, The South West Community Connection. Click here to read what they had to say about us.
Our project has been noticed and reported on by Imensis, a Mozambican news site, in a story dated March 5, 2004. See what they have to say about us by clicking their logo. If you don't read Portuguese, you will find an English translation here.
The Oregonian mentioned our project on March 19th, 2004 in Jonathan Nicolas's column on the front page of the Living Section. Here is what he said:
Giving Peace a Chance:
"Dear girls, I am a 61 year old photographer in Beaverton, Oregon, USA, who discovered your work
today. It was wonderful to find this website which was described in a column in The Oregonian
newspaper this morning. Saria, I enjoyed seeing your photos of some of your world . . . I particularly LOVED your lime and bottle still life. I hope to continue
to watch your work. Lucrência, I loved the signs and assume they must have
something to do with all the rain that has been in your land. Violeta, I loved your containers of beans and
the coffee cup mirroring the young man with his arms folded. Good work. I guess you can tell that
I am watching the work of the women photographers in class. They are so important!
"Blake's dedication and devotion to Mozambique, to Africa, and to his own
exemplary and inspiring and my heart as one who travelled to South Africa
swells with pride."
"The website looks great, so do the photographs the kids took.
You must be really proud of them. I don't think i've ever seen any
Mozambique before. So you can tell your kids that some people are seeing
their country for the very first time through the pictures that THEY took."
"I love looking at your photographs on the web. You are bringing a part of
Mozambique to my home. I will show the pictures to my family."
"The work is very beautiful and I was very moved to see it.." (original
written in Portuguese)
"I'm so amazed by what you've put together — it's an
excellent idea and looks like it took a lot of time and
I . . . want to say 'thank you' for doing something that
great for Mozambican children."
"Still living in Mozambique.
Wow! What an amazing project! I am so impressed! And good for you for
seeing a need and filling it."
"Just took a look at your project and i
think it is amazing.. what an awesome idea.. let me know if there
is anything i can do or offer."
"I just checked out your website and wanted to tell you how incredible
I think your project is. I am really blown away — what an awesome
and opportunity to share with young Mozambicans....I can't wait to
see the pictures that come in!! And actually, I would be interested
to come check
things out sometime."
