Today is the last visit for consultations in Russia and the last place where Photo Youth is living. More than thousand kilometers on the road with a lot of friends that we made starting in Riga Monday 7th May. For Ilmars and me it was so fast, and so short, willing to have more time to be with the children and the teachers working with the photo cameras and macbook. Vyborg is a quite place where Olga Kareva lead the project Photo Youth. The Centre of complex social services citizens “Vyborg” is a place where children get many education in different levels and ways and our visit was plenty of friendship and lovely people working hard for people with special needs. Personally I would like to stay more time and Vyborg have this air of mystery that any journalist and photographer wish to discover. Lets see what happen after august because they deserve a more long visit.
We are on the road visiting schools of the Photo Youth project, shooting pictures, talking with children and teachers and improving the project more and more. Daily we upload pictures in the Facebook social network page http://www.facebook.com/photoyouth and our partners from St. Petersburg created as well one page in a russian site by Photo Youth project manager Lena Lashkova: http://vk.com/projectphotoyouth
The visit consultations is a time for meet with project managers, teachers and students to create a good ambient of photography and discuss to how improve and achieve goals.
The weather is very good, warm and only yesterday Friday 11 May the rain don’t allow us to walk in St. Petersburg streets.
