Sahara: A Blind Heritage

About 175,000 Sahrawis of the former Spanish colony of Western Sahara, fled during the invasion of Morocco and Mauritania. They lived more than 40 years in the refugee camps of Hammada of Tindouf in Alegeria. This area is a large plateau and is considered some of the most arid land.

This participatory photo project was made with a group of children between the ages of 9 and 12 over a three week period. None of the children had ever touched a digital camera before.

 

The conditions in the Alergian hamada are very rough, temperatures during the day reach 45 degrees and drop down to zero at night. Without running water or electricity, they depend solely on international humanitarian organizations.
