Photography to Support Change

A few weeks back, I posted an interview with photographer Damari McBride about his project in South Africa with Nourish and Photographers Without Borders. This week, the resulting documentary was released which gives us a deeper look into how our arts can help support change. 

For those who missed the first article, McBride shared his thoughts on why we should all consider doing a photojournalistic project and how we can make that happen. This documentary takes you on not only McBride's journey, but those of the Nourish team, anti-poaching teams, and the kids who are looking toward a brighter future. 

If you're interested, one potential place you could start looking for your own project to be a part of is Photographers Without Borders. Their team are dedicated to working with photographers and filmmakers to facilitate change and grassroots development all over the world. Head over to check out their beautifully crafted magazine and see what projects they are currently planning. 

Even if an international trip is not possible for you, you can take away so much from this documentary about supporting communities and how you photography could affect the people in your own community. Spend some time considering what you could do to work with those less fortunate and share your talents while you enjoy this short video.
