INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAY
A light-box of selected photos will be presented to the United Nations in New York on 12 August 2010 to celebrate International Youth Day. IYD 2010 will also herald the launch of the UN's International Year of Youth, and the year's theme 'Dialogue and Mutual Understanding'. Photography is after all a form of dialogue and a way of promoting mutual understanding among cultures and generations.
Shoot Nations is hosting a two month long exhibiton of past project photos in the lobby of the United Nations Secretariat building in New York City. See www.shootnations.org/exhibition for more information.
