LOOK@U is a project of photo workshops with young people around the Mediterranean sea that Solène Champenois, a youth worker and amateur photographer coming from France, is realizing in 2012. The aim of this project is to develop young people's looks towards the society they live in and towards themselves, and to favour a better understanding between the inhabitants of the Mediterranean area.
The first step of this project took place in Palermo and the second step is now taking part in Athens with the support of the organization Citizens in Action. 4 young people are taking pictures on diverse society topics and Solène is taking pictures of each one of the young participants. An exhibition will take place in Athens at the beginning of april 2012.
This process will be repeated in the different Mediterranean countries where the workshop will be handed out. At the end the pictures will be gathered in a webdocumentary that should enable the public to understand more young people realities and concerns, in order to favour a better place for youth in nowadays society.
