THE ROLE OF CULTURE AND DIVERSITY IN PHOTOGRAPHY
The world is a culturally rich and diverse place yet most of our portfolios reflect what we see in the mirror or the local communities in which we live, work and play. While there is a sense of comfort in sticking to what we know best, stepping out of our comfort zone brings understanding and appreciation of the world around us in countless ways. Let us train ourselves to look at photography with an inclusive lens and learn how to turn everyday moments into a compelling cultural narrative.
