“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” Don McCullin

Challenge

Have you ever met a person that left a lifetime impression on you? Maybe it was about how they inspired you to do something, or something they used to say, a personal quote that stuck with you and guided you? Or maybe they told you a little story from their lives that left a mark on you and you found yourself passing that to other people? Something that you will always remember about that person in your life because it was amazing, touching, heartwarming, sad or happy.

Solution

There are but moments that become shareable life stories, there are but few people that when we cross paths with, something changes forever. A meeting of strangers turns into a life-long friendship or a courtesy of another vagabond hiker that you shared a cup of tea and some stories with gives you the energy and motivation to take the right decision when in doubt on a trail… There is but one currency in this world that has never changed its value – it is human friendship. Show it on film!

Results

Pictures and stories submitted for the #foapnation Mission mesmerised us. We looked with amazement, awe, joy and often tears at portraits and stories you shared. We believe that love, friendship and respect are what makes us better people, the world- a better place. You captured so many unique people in your pictures that we could easily publish a book! And who knows, maybe one day we will!
