Global Photography Campaign
How do you see development? How can you portrait the human face of the
development processes? How do you show that development initiatives and
programmes improve the lives of people? This Global Photography Campaign
aims to show examples of people winning the battle against poverty, social
exclusion and marginalization. It is intended to raise awareness of the
successes in the development process. The campaign is intended to
counterbalance the frequently shown images of desolation and despair. A
photo gallery will to be permanently located at IPC-IG office and open for
public visitation. A series of photo exhibitions will also be organized in
several cities around the world. Everyone can and is strongly encouraged
to participate in this global effort and contribute with a photograph.
