Foto Friendship 2018 is currently underway connecting new foto friends in Timor-Leste and Australia.

This year Foto Friendship was thrilled to work with Canley Vale High School in Western Sydney for the first time. The Foto Friendship team worked with a group of girls studying photography and digital media under the guidance of their dedicated teacher Sandra Choy-Simpson. You can see some of their work in Gallery | group 8.

In Dili our Timorese facilitators Eva Soares Gamma and Bety Reis welcomed back Eskola Cristal for a second time. Their work will be featured in our gallery page later in the year.
