How Cameras & Toys Change Kids’ Lives
We’ve all been there: not having the words to express what we feel. Kids in war zones know this too well.
Brian McCarty had a thought: what if cameras were the key to teaching kids how to tell their stories?
He traveled to Jerusalem, the center of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, to find out.
Brian asked kids to draw what they’ve seen, and then recreated the scenes in a photograph with toys. He found that a combination of play and art therapy was a powerful and life changing way to give kids a voice.
Photographers often turn to their camera when words just won’t do. Turns out kids are no different.
