Comsocial - Multi-media production

The image is not the whole story but if we want to raise awareness and show that change is possible - it's vital.

In a world of moving headlines, what doesn’t make the news might as well not exist. Other realities marked by voiceless hardship or nameless indignity don’t often come into our field of vision. When they do, we turn away unsure of what to do next. But that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t matter to us.

Maybe we haven’t visited the place where an epidemic is taking hold or known what it means to be driven from your home. And yet each of us knows what it feels like to be an outsider somewhere. What it means when someone reaches out, acknowledges your fears, hopes or dreams.

Strong images invite us to strike up a conversation with ourselves, with the person next to us and with the world around us. It’s in that exchange that gaps in our experience start to close and shared horizons open up. Taking that first look is the start of imagining a better tomorrow. Written by Elena von Essen
