Project information

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.
