The traumatic experience of refugees fleeing war and terror in the Middle East has captured the world’s attention. Photographer and teaching artist, Beatrice Schachenmayr has chose to use her talents to inspire youth, through photography, to become empowered in their new communities around the world. In the Fall of 2015 Beatrice traveled to Istanbul, Turkey bringing with her a dozen cameras, her goal: provide refugee youth the opportunity to share their experiences and feelings through photography. Beatrice is currently living and pursuing Frame Your Story's 5th project in Berlin, Germany.
Using cameras to empower refugee youth, inspire global connections and strengthen communities.
