Pinhole. Polaroid. Panorama

BY 30 HOUR FAMINE TEAM

Pinhole cameras allow you to take photos by light entering a camera through a tiny hole. This light then projects onto a piece of photo paper and often creates a blurry image. A polaroid snaps a photo and instantly prints. A panorama gives you  a wide angle view in great detail.

Before stepping into Burundi, the study tour students’ understanding of Burundi was a lot like photographing through a pinhole camera. Limited in view, and producing a vague picture of reality. Now they are in Burundi, and living and experiencing moments, much like you would capture  with a polaroid. After living there,  meeting the people, and experiencing the culture  we hope they walk away with a panorama of understanding. Here are some of their moments from arriving at the airport, training in Seattle,  up until now.
