Cameras wanted for Bangladesh climate change photo project

Do you have an old camera lying around?

I am seeking donations of digital cameras for a pilot climate change photography project that I will be working on whilst in Bangladesh over the next year.

The project will consist of photography workshops to support Bangladeshi’s to document themselves both the impacts of climate change that are already affecting their lives and communities, and the positive actions and projects that are happening in response.

Wanted: Working digital cameras (3MP and over resolution, old/new) with charger (memory cards/accessories accepted too)

By when: ASAP…! or by Wed April 27th at the very latest please

Please post/drop off to: 115 Gladstone Avenue, Northcote. (map) If dropping off please behind tree on front porch out of sight of street). If unable to post/drop off, I may be able to collect it from you – let me know thanks.

Info: contact me on 0432 025 911 /

Personal background: I’ve always loved taking photos! I did an art photography degree at the VCA and have run small photography projects in India, East Timor and Indonesia (mainly with children). The last project was in Footscray and is documented here. I hope that this project can help some of the people being most affected by climate change tell their story.

thanks for your time,
Michael Chew
