We’ve just been sent information relating to this project and it’s amazing, it’s not mobile per se, but I see no reason why something like this couldn’t be though…
Ripple Effect Images is a team of journalists dedicated to documenting poor women and girls around the world, highlighting the programs that are helping to empower them, especially as they deal with the effects of climate change.
The purpose of this series is to explore the lives and work of celebrated photographers Annie Griffiths, Lynn Johnson and Ami Vitale, and what they hope to accomplish collectively as Ripple Effect Images.
Separately, each photographer, over the course of their careers, noticed patterns in the way women and girls in developing countries could change the lives of those around them for the better. And each photographer noticed the real and dramatic effects that climate change was having on those same women and girls.
The Ripple Effect series tracks the careers of Griffiths, Johnson and Vitale as they come to the conclusions that ultimately caused them to form their collective. It also explains in detail the purpose and vision of the organization and how that vision will bring much needed help to the women and girls they have photographed during their careers.
I really loved learning more about the photographers and watching their video interviews, it’s so inspiring and satisfying. One of the photographers Lynn Johnson said this “Photography is my identity…and I think what it gives to me is that constant question, can I use photography to give to others?” – this is where I come from, this is exactly the kind of project I would like TheAppWhisperer to embrace – this is something I am very passionate about. Johnson also goes on to say, ‘“It’s been proven by every bit of research that if you help women get resources in their hands they will use a majority of those resources for the health of their children and their families”. Isn’t this what life is about, or should at least be about?
