Just like we did before last year's Menu for Hope, not long before this year's campaign began our friend Richard Lee at the WFP dropped off a bunch of disposable cameras with the children at White Hill Primary School, one of the beneficiary schools in the remote areas of Lesotho. We wanted those children to share with us their world, through their own eyes and not mediated by the lens of the pros.
What returned with the cameras was no less than astonishing, especially considering that some of these children have hardly seen a camera, never mind having worked with one. Here's a selection of my favorite shots from this year's lot, and if you haven't seen the ones from last year, you should check them out as well.
Besides being a tardy blogger and juggling about a gazillion things at the moment? Well, baking this stuff is one. What are they? Plum coffeecakes! Tender crème fraîche batter, fragrant slices of plum, buttery crumb on top, baked into the cutest little loaf pans I brought home from Paris.
