I Was Shot In Cape Town is a charity program and exhibition featuring photographs taken by underprivileged children.
On the 8th of September, we attended the launch of the I Was Shot In Cape Town exhibition at The Grand Café & Beach in Granger Bay.
I Was Shot Foundations is an NGO that empowers underprivileged children through photography. Originally started in Johannesburg, the foundation aimed at Cape Town and selected 19 youths from Mamelani Projects for the first phase of the project. The training ranges from shooting with digital cameras to computer literacy and post production, and the goal of the project was to enable the kids to channel their hardships through photography as a creative outlet. Phase one culminated with the I Was Shot In Cape Town exhibition, currently on show at The Grand.
Below are some photographs from the children as well as some snapshots from the exhibition opening.
