Capturing moments in time
Preserving more than just time
Every frame captures a narrative that can be interpreted in a multitude of ways by the viewer. Photography not only freezes time, it preserve emotions, thoughts, and feelings.
Every frame captures a story because it is the product of the photographer’s vision and intent. The photograph becomes a physical manifestation of that moment, a tangible reminder of a particular time and place. In this way photographers, can create powerful and meaningful images.
Engaging on a deeper level
Documentary photographers, for example, use their skills to tell the stories of people and places that are often overlooked or forgotten. Their images can shine a light on important social issues, bringing attention to injustices and raising awareness about the struggles of marginalised communities.
The power of photography lies in its ability to capture not just what is visible, but also what is unseen. Every frame captures a story that goes beyond the surface-level details of the image. It can reveal the personality and emotions of the subject, the context of the moment, and the relationship between the people and objects in the frame. A skilled photographer can use these elements to create a rich and layered story that invites the viewer to engage with the image on a deeper level.
New ways of seeing
As viewers, we can experience these moments through the eyes of others, to see the world in new and different ways, and to connect with the stories that are captured in every frame.

The art of the interview

Water in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
For two of the most belligerent ethnonational groups in recent history, water has been a source of both conflict and cooperation.
What is the Third Sector?
The Third Sector is often a misunderstood category, but it’s a great way to encapsulate all the organisations working for positive change. In this journal, we demystify the term.
