How to Become a Socially Engaged Photographer
Nearly 250 pages of tips, tricks, exercises, inspiration & ideas to make photography more inclusive for both your subject and audience


This book is the book I wish I’d had in my photography studies. 
It is a playful, exploratory and accessible book full of assignments for every photographer who wants to tell stories with people, instead of about them. It will introduce you to the concept of socially engaged photography and challenge you to incorporate participation and collaboration in your own photographic practice.
This book has no rules, no beginning and no end, no long dense texts, no facts you have to learn by heart and no tests you have to pass.
It does however require some other qualities from you. It asks for an open mind, a brave attitude, a listening ear, an empathetic heart and a willingness to collaborate with others around you.
Good luck, enjoy and engage!
