Imagine: Visions of Hope is creating a visual catalog of human resilience, determination, and perseverance – a reminder of our collective ability to overcome even the most dire challenges. These images remind us of hope.

What we're doing

Imagine: Visions of Hope is a collection of still images intended to help us re-examine the gravity of despair and reshape it, producing a strong rebuttal to the weight of the public health crisis facing the world today.

This project intends to influence our imagination, reinforcing the infectiousness of hope with each additional image.

Photographers are encouraged to submit up to five images that best portray hope. All submissions must adhere to the principles of photojournalism; images should be truthful in depiction and context. If the image is selected, then it will be part of this online photo gallery and will later be considered for a global exhibition.

This project is a collaboration between the Iris Photo Collective and Focus on the Story.
