young in prison

Kadir van Lohuizen

Kadir van Lohuizen travelled to Malawi to complete the first phase of a collaborative project with Young in Prison, a Dutch NGO that campaigns for the rights of juveniles in prisons. The first chapter of this long-term project starts at the Mzuzu prison in Malawi. The project consists of a photo essay produced by Kadir documenting their living conditions and day-to-day life, and a workshop of practical photography exercises with 11 juvenile inmates.

He produced a black and white photo essay about the prison while the eleven students also produced a series of color photographs. The outcome is quite impressive, considering that none of the boys had ever touched a camera before.
