Introducing access to quality mathematics learning content 24/7
Microsoft introduced Microsoft Math in South Africa, where it was a huge success. It was eventually launched in Tanzania. Mobile Math makes the learning experience personal, engaging and exciting. Students can complete math exercises on their mobile phones and work with friends on-line.
Martin Broomfield was commissioned to photograph at two schools in Dar es Salaam. The images were used in print material and on the Microsoft Math website. He also filmed a video with the assistance of David Vee.
Photography & VIDEO
Ponso is a 40+ year old male chimpanzee. He was born in Liberia. He was orphaned at a young age and used in viral research.
In 1983, Ponso and nineteen other chimps were relocated to an island, close to Azagny National Park in Ivory Coast. The ultimate goal was to release them but in a few months, eleven had died from lack of care or poaching. The nine survivors (including Ponso) were relocated to a smaller island. Five chimpanzees died shortly after this from disease or hunger.
Martin Broomfield was commissioned to photograph Ponso on an island in Grand Lahou. The images were used in newspapers world-wide and on a GoFundMe website, where money for his feeding and re-location was raised in a year. Martin also designed a logo for SOS Ponso and shot a video when Ponso was tested before transportation to another country.
