This week: Handing out disposable cameras to coffee farmers in eastern Uganda to document their experience of climate change. A collaboration of @the_fulbright_program @natgeo and @iita_cgiar @onno.giller #coffeecameras #photojournalism

I gave disposable cameras to Ugandan coffee farmers. Here's what climate change looks like to them. New story on @npr link in bio #nprfood #everydayafrica #fulbright #coffeecameras #coffee

Today @onno.giller and I gave Sam Massa printouts of the photos he took last month....his was the first #coffeecameras image I posted a couple weeks back if you want to check. He loved them, and it was so amazing to hear his stories behind each of the photos. I particularly loved the story behind one of a man sitting on a hill. "This is an old man I visit now and then," Sam said. "You can see the place around him is dry, because of this drought. Even the man himself is also dry [laugh]. He's in his 90s, but he still carries a hoe and bends his back to grow beans. He's a challenge to the community to work hard." There was an anecdote like this behind most of the photos, including some where his son stole the camera and took some pictures Sam didn't know about, and a neighbor he's helping to work through alcoholism (by starting a new small business: roasted pig intestines. Not sure which of the 12 steps that is). Anyway this project continues to amaze me. There's still a lot of work ahead to finish interviewing all the farmers. Stay tuned. @the_fulbright_program @natgeo @iita_cgiar

This month I gave 12 coffee farmers in Uganda disposable cameras and asked them to spend a week documenting their experience of climate change. I intentionally left the instructions very open-ended, so they would feel free to photograph anything that caught their eye. I kept low expectations for the photos; this was the farmers' first time using a camera, and the cameras were low-quality anyway. On Monday I got the pictures developed, and was blown away. Really beautiful, creative, intimate insights into farmers' daily lives. I'll publish more of the photos soon, but want to start by just sharing some of them here. They're totally unedited. This one is by Robinah Muzaki, who lives in the high altitudes of Mt. Elgon. #coffeecameras @the_fulbright_program @natgeo @iita_cgiar #everydayafrica #photography
