The Bam Project Book
Since the earthquake in 2004, Picture People has provided cameras and training to the people of Bam, encouraging people’s desire for self expression and for a better life. Over the past 5 years, we have given over 500 cameras and run workshops for 150 people; to men, women and children.
The outcome of these workshops is an archive of over 300 images; a visual journey from the days after the earthquake to now. The images, made by the people of Bam, and coupled with their testimonies, form a unique, visual and textual document to the aftermath of the tragedy. It is an outstanding creative archive, whose legacy, we feel, must be preserved for future generations.
