SOme of our work:
Fish Out Of Sea is a photography initiative for and by vulnerable populations and the agencies aiding them. It is a globally oriented project that aims to raise awareness to humanitarian crises through the viewpoint of those affected the most, whilst creating a powerful tool for agencies to show the reality on the ground.
Each participant received a disposable camera and one week to show life through their POV.
We are a non profit project which aims to bring the instrument of photography and self expression to those who need it and provide an otherwise unseen perspective to the project's audience.
Please consider supporting FOOS by inviting us for an exhibition, cooperation or by donating to us.
What do we do?
We give photo-expressive workshops that supply participants from a wide range of backgrounds with tools to create and let their voices be heard.
The last projects we made span from the detention centers in the Israeli Negev desert to the notorious beaches and camps in the Greek islands of Lesbos & Chios, depicting the largest mass migration since WW2 from the eyes of those affected the most.
WHAT'S OUR MISSION?
Our initiative gives participants a chance to show their personal viewpoint through their day to day struggles. It allows the ability to share and express hardships through the aesthetic distance of the lens and empowers the participants in a newfound way that gives them and the audience a new way to engage.
Our aim is to assist the voiceless in telling their stories.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We seek to reach new communities and bring vulnerable population's stories into the spotlight and enable a more intimate encounter between them and the public at large in order to raise awareness and encourage innovative ways to help.
