WA Maritime Museum

The As Eye See It Photographic Exhibition offers the opportunity for young people living in care in Western Australia to express what is important to them through photography.

Participants were given a camera and encouraged to take four photographs of things which hold a special significance for them, and one of their right eye. The young photographers were also invited to submit brief captions describing why they had captured each image.

The collection of photographs aims to raise awareness about what it means to live in out-of-home care and provides an insight into the world of those who live in it.

Coordinated by the Department for Child Protection and Family Support, and supported by the Western Australian Museum and the Central Institute of Technology.
