Summer Pop Up with 100cameras and Gansett Lane Home / August 10th 2-5 pm

100CAMERAS TO SHOWCASE PHOTOGRAPHY FROM CHILDREN 

ALL OVER THE WORLD IN AMAGANSETT

The organization aims to empower children who are overcoming challenges through photography

AMAGANSETT, NY –  Nonprofit organization 100cameras teaches children who face adversity how to process their experiences and tell their stories through a structured photography curriculum. The organization also serves as a platform to sell these photographs, giving 100% of proceeds toward the most pressing needs in every community.  

Gansett Lane Home (255 Main St, Amagansett, NY 11930) will host a summer pop-up exhibition of 100cameras’ student photography on Saturday, August 10th from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. 100cameras cofounder Angela Popplewell will be on-site to discuss her work with the organization. Suggested attire is beach casual.

100cameras collaborates with local community organizations in places like Iraq, Peru, South Sudan, Venezuela, Vietnam, and the United States. The organization works with industry leaders such as Fuji and SanDisk to donate the equipment, and instruction is provided by dedicated creatives who volunteer their time and commitment.  

100cameras is more than art education, it serves as an outlet for children to tell the stories of their past, present, and future through photography with no judgment or expectations. As participating students range from 10 – 18 years old, the curriculum is custom-designed to teach both storytelling and technical photography skills.
