Born Into Brothels

"Silhouette" by Kochi

If you have never seen Born Into Brothels, I highly recommend it.  After who knows how many years of people telling me to watch it, I finally did last night.  It's both beautiful and heartbreaking.  It's the story of a woman who lives in a brothel of Calcutta's red light district.  She teaches the brothel's children about photography.  Each kid is given a camera and through that, we are allowed a glimpse of their world. 

I read up on a few other "Kids with Cameras" projects.  You can find them here, here, and here.
