Humans of Europe - Europe for Humans is a UK-wide campaign which aims to capture the thoughts and feelings of everyday citizens on Europe. Through a powerful combination of portrait photography and conversation extracts, viewers are invited to share in the personal narratives of people from all over the UK and from all walks of life on any aspect of Europe.
In order to collect a plethora of views and ideas, we are seeking photo contributions to add to our campaign. What does Europe mean to individuals? How have European experiences shaped their lives and how do they in turn shape Europe themselves? Photo contributions can draw stylistic inspiration from Humans of New York and should be portrait style, accompanied by text taken from conversations led with those depicted on the topic of Europe.
By listening to the stories and perspectives of individuals, Humans of Europe - Europe for Humans seeks to explore the human face and essence of Europe, while lending those who share their views a voice in the process. By taking part in our campaign, contributors have the unique opportunity to be part of, shape and enrich what is a truly community led project.If you would like to take part in this exciting project, it is up to you which form this can take. You could go and speak to passers-by on the street or engage in conversation with your next door neighbour - if they agree to be photographed, you can use your own imagination and creativity to capture a strong photo and record excerpts from your conversation to accompany it. To mirror the diversity of the European population and European views, we encourage you to speak to anyone who is willing to share their thoughts with you. Excerpts can be on anything imaginable related to Europe - whether those are memories, feelings or political views.
