Camera catches world through children's eyes
by David Duprey
Photographer William F. Killough III has captured views on the world through children's eyes, for an exhibit now on view in the Rutherford College dining hall. The 40 photographs represent a larger collection of children from 68 countries, brought together over a journey of two years. It is one of the largest collections of photographs of children in existence, notes Mr Killough, who is on the Lambeth communications staff. ``It's a great privilege for me to be able to share my photographs at the Conference,'' Mr Killough says. ``This exhibit of children from around the world has been a great success during the last year.
``My belief and prayer is that this success has been attributed to the viewers' being able to see the hope that I found in the eyes of these children.'' Leaving the comfort of aWashington (DC) office, Mr Killough went to work with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, and also to her centre in Szczecin, Poland. He has taught and supervised at an orphanage in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, as well as helped with a programme to aid street children in Cape Town, South Africa. ``They are all our children, whether it be from the next door of the farthest realm,'' he says. ``They are the future of our tomorrow. It is our responsibility to ensure that they are given the resources and love to be able to keep the hope that I found in their eyes alive for their tomorrow.'' The exhibit on display at Lambeth can be booked for other venues. Mr Killough may be contacted at the Communications Centre during the Conference.
