After many weeks at home, some of us are starting to gradually return to everyday life. We are launching this initiative in order to pay tribute to all the heroes out there, who made a special effort during the pandemic the past few weeks and did good deeds helping others.
The goal of this project is to put these people in focus by getting photographed by passionate photographers as a sign of appreciation to the special commitment of this person as well as symbolically to an entire occupation group.
We would like to say THANK YOU by creating a photographic and high quality contemporary document which is telling exciting and diverse stories.
Professional groups or people to portray, such as:
midwifes, doctors, nurses, geriatric nurses, teachers, trainers, delivery services, bakers, warehouse workers, sellers, pharmacists, customs officers,…
grandparents, mothers, fathers, children,…
in general people who made special efforts during the crises
We are looking for:
– communication media
– fair organizers
– photo clubs
– and many more
