The world is currently going through significant socio-economic, cultural and political change. We are entering an era of uncertainty, anxiety and disruption that is touching every aspect of our public and private lives.
The WITNESS project aims to create a visual document to represent, social and cultural changes – to create a powerful, living record of everyday life in extraordinary times.
‘Witness’ presents an opportunity to develop a photo documentary archive that other photographers, and photography networks can contribute to, and form the basis for collaborations with journalists, writers, artists and other relevant projects.
