The importance of connection and love beyond a photograph

“If the photographer doesn’t know or care who the people in the photograph are, neither will the audience.

This kind of distanced depiction of vulnerable people tends to create a similar distance between those people and the audience.

If the photographer is dedicated to capturing that which illustrates a persons vulnerability, then the audience will find that to be the most relevant thing about them. Not only is this kind of aesthetic distasteful, it’s a dehumanising process that is rife with real-world consequences.”

At the Worldwide Tribe we aim to share uplifting stories, the beautiful, positive details of the lives of the people we meet.

This community is not about vulnerability or the victims of a crisis, but the strength and unity of people against all odds.

Thank you Athens Refugee Project for joining us on this mission and verbalising this so beautifully.
