While in Uganda, I gave away the majority of pictures in Kamwokya and Kyebando, Kampala. To not ruin the business of all the small photo-studios in the slums I gave most of them to children.
On a more recent trip to Morocco I again brought a Polaroid along, handing out more pictures.
I shoot Fuji FP-100C color film, so the pictures also reflect the time they were taken in. The camera I use is a Polaroid 340 Automatic (sometimes bringing a 330 as a backup). All the waste (except cardboard boxes and paper) was taken back to Europe for recycling or proper disposal.
This project was kindly supportet by Calumet Hamburg and the Designbüro Sven Hoffmann who I thank very much for making it possible. I also thank Alex, Kati and Simone, three social work students from Austria, as well as all the people from KCCC who showed me around the slums of Kampala. Heartfelt thanks go to Alex, my girlfriend. I couldn’t have done it without you.
To be continued in the future.
