Yesterday was the United Nations' Human Rights Day. The local chapter of Amnesty International had arranged an event where a lot of interesting people spoke/sang/danced about human rights related issues. I was there to make sure there were some photos taken (maybe I'll post some of them later) and I thought it was quite interesting.
Among others I got to talk with photographer Anders Clausen who was there to talk about a photo project he had done. Essentially he had handed out 100 disposable cameras to refugees living in camps in Denmark waiting and hoping to get asylum to stay in the country. They were told to photograph their life while waiting. The result is an exhibition which has travelled around Denmark for some time now and early next year there will also be a book about the project. While the quality of the photos in the traditional sense was far from perfect, there was something really interesting about the way even underexposed and out-of-focus photos can tell a story that you would otherwise never have access to. Also, as subsequent interviews witht the photographers would show, the story behind the photo was often completely different from what the Anders had imagined when he picked out an image for the exhibition. This difference in the level of abstraction is another interesting thing about this exhibition.
I would love to show you some of the photos. I have only found one on this page (scroll down a bit to find it) but this is one of the Anders' own favorites and should give you an idea. Also if you understand Danish there's an interesting inverview with Anders Clausen (Real Audio) from DR Kultur that's worth checking out. I'll post another link later if i find more photos online.

Christian Patterson tells stories from Memphis, Tennesee. At MONOSTEP the big dirty industrial machine paradigm is photographed. Jordan Crane uses photography in many interesting experiments. I kinda like it.
*Note to self: Much easier to post loads of links if you do it in the same log-entry :-)
