Ramdas Lamb and Paula Stockman Allerstorfer of Sahayog Foundation and photographer Dana Forsberg discuss their on-going project teaching photography to rural girls in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh. The unique role of girls and woman in the elimination of poverty and community change is addressed through this photography project targeted at high school age girls. The girls are not only learning technical skills, but also using photography as a method of self-expression. The work of the students is shown and the practical application of the project explored.
Dana Forsberg has exhibited her work at numerous venues, including Denver International Airport, Ron Judish Fine Arts in Denver, The Contemporary Museum at First Hawaiian Center in Honolulu, and the Incheon Art and Cultural Center in Incheon, Korea. Her work can be seen at www.danaforsberg.com.
