WHAT

We use photography as a tool for individuals and communities to express themselves, dialogue and grow together and individually.

WHY

We believe that self-representation and participation are universal rights and that stories should be shaped and owned by the people who are being represented.

PARTICIPATORY PHOTOGRAPHY

is a collective experiential process that ensures the communities themselves are at the forefront of the message and participate in an inclusive way.

PEACE BUILDING

Photography takes you in an inner and outer emotional and spiritual journey. It can trigger and release the memories which had, until then, been buried or blocked out and create individual or community healing.
“With Fotosynthesis it’s not just about photography for the sake of it. Its about developing a creative language to explore the world and think critically about the issues facing us all. Their commitment to social justice is what makes them unique’ Lucy Pearson, Development Officer, RefugeeYouth.”
