Matt writes to Speak Out:
“I am a professional photography and a photography teacher based in Sydney Australia. I spent the bulk of the last 18 years travelling the world and I train my students in objectives-based photography and the power of photography as a power medium for communication. I also run tours in Africa with a realistic experience to globalisation and population, precisely what is covered in that eye-opening book that you are using for such a communication tool. I have a database of over 2000 people that I regularly communicate with and conduct talks at various organisations about travel photography, documentary photography and the power of imagery to sway views and emotions. I am passionate about what I do and I’m passionate about all that your book stands for. My partner and I are both well-travelled, we are ethical shoppers and have chosen not to have children based on the same views that your organisation conveys. If I can help to spread the word through the power of your imagery then I would be much obliged. With your book as a motivator I would also like to contribute images in the future. I would also proudly display the book at any of my personal events like exhibitions or talks. I would only need the minimum amount of books and I would rather direct inspired people to buy the book and further fund this campaign, it’s brilliant!!!”
There are many ways to participate! Together, we can raise awareness and bring about change.
