The goal of this project is to improve the living conditions of women prisoners at the Barbar Khazen prison in Lebanon by developing their technical and interpersonal skills through photography workshops. The project aims to help prisoners overcome the psychological difficulties they face through a multi-beneficial means of expression and prepare them to re-integrate in society once they are released from prison. An exhibition and photography publication after the completion of the workshop will also serve to share the hidden reality of prison life to a wider public.
