How do you see development? How can you portrait the human face of the development processes? How do you show that development initiatives and programmes improve the lives of people?

Global Photography Campaign

The Global Photography Campaign on Humanizing Development launched on 1 June 2009 aims to promote and showcase visual examples of people winning the battle against poverty, social exclusion and marginalization by bringing light and life into the above questions.

The Global Photography Campaign aims to show examples of people winning the battle against poverty, social exclusion and marginalization. It is intended to raise awareness of the successes in the development process. The campaign is intended to counterbalance the frequently shown images of desolation and despair. A photo gallery will to be permanently located at IPC-IG office and open for public visitation. A series of photo exhibitions will also be organized in several cities around the world.
