Photo Challenge: Humanity

While thinking about this challenge and the idea that people are different but very much the same I realized that photographers are, too. Well, different that is. Much of our personality comes through in what we photograph and how it is done. By example, you will see many of my images of people are landscapes with people in them. Often distant shots. I like my privacy and treat people the same. When my youngest daughter grabs my camera she likes to put the lens right in the face of her subject. Most of her shots are close-ups that focus on immediate personality. She’s that way in life, too. Close… except now she’s living 3000 miles away. I miss her. We’re different, but very much the same. Humans.

    These are all beautiful! I agree, it is hard to get a close up shot of someone. I only do it when I have asked permission and have met them. Many of the photos in my example were taken during work trips with different NGOs. I love the feeling of your photos here how you incorporate the people into the different landscapes. They are stunning.

  2. Thanks for looking in… You are fortunate to be able to travel extensively. It is great to be able to see different cultures and, as you said, they are different but fundamentally the same. I did most of my traveling in the decades before digital photography. Thanks for sharing and for putting forth a good challenge.

  3. I tend to be like you in this. But your photos are as beautiful in their way as photos that prominently feature people.

    I really love these. One of my favourite types of photo to take (without me knowing this before) is of people from behind!

  5. This is lovely. Thank you for sharing! 🙂

    Oooo. How sad! Where is your daughter now? I really wish that you both can be together sooner or later.

    What a lovely interpretation of humanity from such a personal perspective! I like your idea of capturing ‘humanity’ from a distance. It gives a different beauty to the landscape. 🙂 Do visit my post as well. Thanks.
