Change the world – with photography. Art Meets Education is committed to this vision. AME is a young NGO which gives children who are growing up in poverty the chance for a better future – through their own photography. AME holds photo workshops in the Philippines for children from disadvantaged social backgrounds. The children are given analogue cameras and shoot their own photographs of people, places and moments they encounter. Sales of the photos as prints ensures them a twelve-year school education.
To do even more for the children in Manila, an AME merch collection has now been designed – which supports the children’s school education 100 percent. For the launch, AME founder Nico Klein-Allermann and lifestyle photographer Anatol Gottfried shot the collection in Barcelona. Attention to detail meets energy-packed creative freedom. Full of life and spontaneity, the photos show what the AME photo project means to the children. Capturing the essence of life itself.
