On November 15th, 2013, Photographers Without Borders (PWB) launched a moving and inspiring exhibit entitled “Re-Frame” at Hermann & Audrey (1506 Dundas Street West, Toronto). PWB sent six photographers to capture images, videos and stories detailing the work of five grassroots organizations located all around the world. The work at the exhibit is a preview of a zine that will be launched in early 2014 as an output strategy for inspiring, motivating and educating the public about how global and local issues are being addressed at the local level. PWB’s Global Photography Service Program creates opportunities for participants to create change and to document the incredible work people in these organizations are doing to champion social and environmental causes. The exhibit attracted hundreds of people interested who came away from the exhibit with full hearts and new perspectives.
At PWB, we believe that photography can make a significant impact in promoting the success of grassroots organizations that champion social and environmental causes. Photography is also a strong force in bringing each of us closer in the world we inhabit and is a valuable way of contributing to sustainable development, impacting livelihoods, sharing perspectives, fostering cross-cultural understanding, and much more.
