“You just have to live and life will give you pictures” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
For the last 12 or more years we’ve travelled the world with our cameras looking for visual stories; significant memories in the lives of others. We’ve seen moments that changed history in the biggest and smallest of ways, we’ve seen cultures come together, optimism in hardship, beauty and laughter in friendship and borne witness time and again to the most important moments in two people’s lives.
But through all that we’ve come to realise that the most powerful memories don’t necessarily come directly from a giant event in someone’s life, they come from the people who are there with you in that moment. They come from the friends who laugh with you, the communities that surround you, the slightest of touches and the smallest of interactions.
Memories are more than a mere recording of an event, they’re a feeling, an understanding of a moment. For us as photographers that’s exactly what we want to capture in the stories that we find just about everywhere we look.
