I wanted to create an experience that people would remember

Photographer Peter DiCampo has just finished a busy week exhibiting ‘Life without Lights’ in partnership with Ashden at the Strand Gallery in London. Now, with time to reflect, I had a chance to ask Peter what he felt about the event and explore what he is looking at next.

Listen to some of his thoughts on the impact of giving people solar lamps to view the darkened exhibition:

Showing  his images of people living in energy poverty alongside a view of solutions from Ashden winners upstairs was new experience for Peter. Here he describes how valuable that has been:

Finally, Peter talks about what’s happened in these Northern Ghanaian villages since he left, and what his next projects will be.
