In Chiang Mai, Thailand, Lensational collaborated with Daughter’s Rising, an NGO that empowers at-risk women through education to end sex tra cking and exploitation in their communities and break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. The Thai government has estimated that there are 20,000 to 30,000 children younger than 18 in the commercial sex industry (statistics from The Thailand Project). Lensational provided photography training to women considered “at-risk” for sex tra cking.
After the completion of the the 4-week programme, the students’ works were displayed at Sleepbox Chiang Mai Photo Gallery in April 2016.
The exhibition was an incredible success with students seeing their hard work paid o in person. The photographs captured revelatory moments of change while sharing intimate visual stories with exhibition visitors.
