Prisoners gain new focus though pinhole photography

Great thing I’ve found on the BBC. Now using photography to help rehabilitate prisoners sense of  “self”. The photography workshops facilitated by YoNoFui, a social organisation that runs support and education schemes for women both in and outside prison core’s idea  is to teach prisoners life skills while providing a vital space for their self-expression.

The  project receives government funding, the long-term goal is for it to finance itself though the sale of goods such as furniture and handicrafts produced in its workshops.

here are some photos:
