The 4th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

The mobile photo studio

Fablab La Verrière, Montreuil  -  France

This project is inspired by the work of contemporary photographers, themselves inspired by African photo studios of the 1950s. For the young participants in the Solidarity FabLab, the idea was to invent a new photo studio concept that will produce images of the residents of their neighbourhood. At the FabLab, the team of unemployed 19 to 25-year-olds, supported by a photographic artist, designed and made engraved stamps and stencils to paint the studio's backdrop fabrics. 2D design (Inskape, Adobe illustrator, Adobe Capture), 3D fabrication (TinkerCAD) and an introduction to software tools turned the idea into reality.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!

Since 2015, we have offered free training in our Solidarity FabLabs to young people leading difficult lives. In the FabLabs they learn digital manufacturing, teamwork and perhaps a future trade. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It allows them to use our FabLabs to develop a project from A to Z and show everything they are capable of doing today. This year, it is all about using digital technology to devise and produce creations for the worlds of fashion, design and the arts.
