Grantee: VII Academy supports Sirkhane Darkroom for Syrian Refugees

In the Southeast of Turkey, a small mobile darkroom shines a light in the lives of children displaced by the Syrian conflict. Run by photographer Serbest Salih, himself a Syrian refugee, Sirkhane DARKROOM is a photography school currently situated in Mardin Istasyon, an imporverished neighbourhood in the city of Nusaybin. The children in the program use inexpensive compact film cameras to document their lives, and learn how to develop and print in the darkroom.
