The outdoor exhibition 'The Children of Tacloban – 100 Cameras for 100 Children' features photographs taken by children and teenagers of the Philippine city of Tacloban. In the wake of the devastating typhoon Haiyan in 2013, 100 children were given the opportunity to create a record of their experiences.
Organised by photo service company CEWE and German TV station NDR, the exhibition is based on a long-term project created by ARD television correspondent Philipp Abresch, who has distributed disposable cameras in crisis zones for the past 15 years.
A month after the typhoon, Abresh distributed 100 disposable cameras among Tacloban's children and teenagers, so that they might capture what they considered to be important. The result was a total of almost 4000 images: snapshots and spontaneous photographs, some shocking or sad, but the majority of them full of energy, humour and joie-de-vivre.
The outdoor exhibition in front of Hamburg's Deichtorhallen, comprising a selection of 40 photographs, was curated by Ingo Taubhorn.
