FotoKonbit is a non-profit organization that teaches photography to youth and adults in Haiti. FotoKonbit students use photography to explore and represent their lives, ideas and communities. Some students use photography to earn a living.
FotoKonbit provides photographic and computer training and helps students use photography to pay for their education.
FotoKonbit was founded in 2010 by a group of Haitian and American photographers, artists and educators. We have worked with over one hundred students from nine different communities and we are currently working in five communities; a group of adults in the southern agricultural town of Camp Perrin, adults in the fishing village of Labadie, children in the cities of Jacmel and Cap Haitien and we teach a weekly photography classes at the Centre d'Art in Port-au-Prince.
