Ger Community Studio Project

Laura Liverani is a professional photographer from Italy. She devised and implemented “ger community studio” project in Mongolia in cooperation with MYDSC in August/September 2012. Youth in the ger communities of Chingeltei were directly involved in the project. They learned technical photographic skills to take portraits of  their own community in a temporary professional studio, specifically set up in the ger district.

The project aimed to build a sense of community and empower youth through photography. Laura Liverani (www.lauraliverani.com) is working on to produce an exhibition and a book, and organize a launch of the project in Europe.

Mr. Batbaatar, a professional photographer of Mongolia (www.inet.mn) has been a great partner for the project offering his technical and teaching support, and he is willing to empower youth by promoting youth social enterprises with MYDSC.
