RWANDA PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

Explore a culture where women dominate our stories.

Ranked as one of the safest countries in Africa, Rwanda is building its future driven by gender equality.

Despite the challenges in educating a very young nation through out its dominating rural and patriarchal land, perhaps one of the high points in Rwanda’s successful stories are how women have been understood as major key players in social change by taking a leading role in various domain including the labor force.

Marie-Jeanne and her twin daughters live in a modest one-room mud house in western Rwanda. A single mother and a victim of the genocide that swept the country in 1994, she opened her door to us during the workshop and told of a remarkable story of survival and generosity, subsequently revealing her daily life in giving anything she earns as a farmer to educate her daughters who dream to become doctors.

The workshop takes us into the engaging process of the visual storytelling while we step into the lives of working communities from the street-maze built on hillside of Kigali to remote regions surrounded by terraced hills and lakes, initiating a dialogue with women like Marie-Jeanne and others who are empowered by will and determination.

Beb REYNOL

Born and raised in France, Beb REYNOL is a documentary photographer and a photojournalist focusing on social-cultural issues. He covered stories of insect hunters, following their footsteps into the heart of the uncharted Amazonian forest of French Guyana; he managed to hitch hike through the whole distance west-east coast length of the U.S before embarking into a long journey through Pakistan and Afghanistan, crossing their borders on foot to meet remote Pashtuns.

Since 1999, Beb has worked alongside photographers and photojournalists around the world contributing to their education and in the development of independent media. His contribution as a photojournalist and educator on the field led him to the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York where he has conducted multiple workshops focusing on the visual storytelling and photojournalism in the context of social change, coordinating leading guest-speakers from the UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and the International Rescue Committee (IRC).

On his latest work, Beb covered the remote and rural regions of Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda. He has been opening new leads in photography workshops in Rwanda focusing on the visual storytelling while creating an exciting learning experience. Collaborating with local partners, these workshops have been designed to fit all photography levels, and travellers alike.
