In time he also began to work with local schools, teaching the children to use the compact cameras that he had prophetically carried all the way up this mountain. The children’s images were a means to explore their dreams and expectations, and each child was able to print their images and organise an exhibition of their photography for their friends and families. In all, over 2000 photos, taken by the children of the upper Himalayas, were printed and exhibited, “which is challenging because we had no electricity!”. Each child also received a portrait of their loved ones, as Jérôme and his friends wanted them to have a physical memory of their parents or grandparents to hold and keep forever. Children in the Himalayas do not have such things.
