fotoforum projects – Hilfsprojekt inspiriert durch Aggreys Traum

Aggreys Traum zieht immer weitere Kreise: 

Die Fortsetzung der Geschichte wurde wieder im fotoforum veröffentlicht. Von Lesern dieser Zeitschrift waren 2010 die ersten Kameras und Spenden für Aggreys Traum gekommen und hatten das Projekt damit in Gang gesetzt. Jetzt liegen weitere Spenden bereit, die wir wahrscheinlich im Juni nach Mombasa bringen werden.

Besonders freuen wir uns aber, dass Aggreys Traum das Fotoforum dazu inspiriert hat, fotoforum projects zu gründen: Eine Initiative, die jährlich 7800 Euro für soziale, ökologische und kulturelle Projekte zur Verfügung stellt, die von fotoforum Lesern vorgeschlagen werden.

Wir sind uns sicher, dass das ganz im Sinne von Aggrey ist, der uneigennützig die Menschen in Shauri Yako unterstützt – auch wenn er selbst kaum Geld hat.

Uwe H. Martin is a visual storyteller and multimedia producer at the Bombay Flying Club. He works mainly on long‐term, in‐depth documentary projects that combine photography with documentary film, text and sound. Currently he partners with Frauke Huber on a set of multimedia documentaries about the global commons water, seed and land: White Gold investigates the social and environmental effects of global cotton production. Their new visual research project LandRush explores the impact of large-scale agro investments on rural economies and land-rights, the boom of renewable fuels, the reallocation of land and the future of agriculture around the world. Both series are part of the collaborative art and research project World of Matter. In 2010, Uwe founded Aggreys Dream, a project supporting a slum school in Mombasa, Kenya, which became the blueprint for the establishing of the Freelens Foundation. Over the years Uwe H. Martin has received numerous recognitions and awards for his work including the German Reporter Award 2011, the Greenpeace Award in 2014 and the Development Media Award 2013. He also serves on the jury of the Lumix Multimedia Award, the CPOY and the Bosch Masterclass „Future of Science Journalism“, where he is also part of the faculty. Uwe studied photojournalism in Hanover, Germany and with the support of a Fulbright grant at the Missouri School of Journalism. Besides his photographic practice Uwe is teaching photography and multimedia storytelling at many different locations around the world among them the Camera Arts program at Lucerne University, Akademie für Publizistik in Hamburg, the Freelens Multimedia Workshops, the Fachhochschule Bielefeld and the University for the Arts in Bremen.
