Featuring works from the ten participants of Junior Shooting Home 2012.

Level 8 Promenade, National Library Building
3 to 30 Jul 2012
Free admission

Family, friendship, growing up and culture are all topics close to the heart and shape one’s view of what home and identity are, what they can be, or what they have ceased to be. These issues take on a different look as they are explored through the eyes of ten young photographers from Junior Shooting Home, a photography mentorship programme by Objectifs. Encouraged to start from home, these young photographers show us the stories of the people and places around us.
