Cover of Julian Germain’s Classroom Projects book

Julian Germain’s camera casts an eye on classrooms across the world, showing pupils of different ages in the environment that will shape their lives forever

He began in 2004 in the North East of England, but photographer Julian Germain’s Classroom Projects has grown to encompass the world.

Germain shoots from the same perspective, the camera as a fixed point while the faces and uniforms of the children changes.  The environment remains unvarying, education has a similar sense of being closed-in, whether you are a schoolkid in Peru or Nigeria.
