HOW YOUR OLD CAMERAS CAN HELP CHANGE THE WORLD!
TRIBE PHOTO democratizes photography by turning remote villagers into photographers enabling them to sell their best work and us to gain a unique insight into their world.
How many of you have old digital cameras lying around on a shelf, never to be used again? We have a suggestion that not only finds new life for your old camera, but it helps people in remote villages who wish to become photographers. Pixel Perfect is partnering with Tribe Photo to collect old working digital cameras from volunteers. Tribe Photo will establish "camera stores” in remote villages, run by a local village partner, and rent these cameras out at a nominal rate (about 10c per day). Tribe Photo will then offer free training and a platform for these villagers to sell their best work online. The photographer will get to keep half of the money made through selling, with the other half split between the local store partner and Tribe Photo.
Which sort of cameras can I give?
Any working digital camera with a working battery and charger. Whether an old point-and-shoot or a DSLR it doesn't matter. Basically these just need to be old but in good working order.
