During the workshop, several National Geographic photographers including Wilstar’s own Marcus Bleasdale taught the art of photography and storytelling to both refugee and Norwegian youth. Our mission for the Photo Camps was to build friendships and understanding and to educate and connect youth from different continents and cultures living in our society through photography.
The Nobel Peace Centre is currently showcasing the work of National Geographic photographers with the work created by students during the Photo Camps. The What is Home? exhibition is displayed on the Peace Wall outside the Nobel Peace Center and will run through September 2018.
