During « La semaine des lycées » the students of Pretoria’s Cycle 3 learnt about various African ethnic groups and were asked to choose their favourite portraits from Mario Gerth’s photographic pieces. These were then cut up, coloured as they envisioned, and reglued to create completely new portraits. The combinations were endless. These were then decorated with beans. The project was used to explore the children’s imaginations, but also make them realize how unique, yet similar, we truly are.
