New Photo Mission: Telling Stories Differently

By Cherrie - 4 min read

We’re joining forces with International Center of Photography to explore visual storytelling

“The camera is an extension of yourself… Your story treatment may be subjective, but it is important to remain objective as to truth.”
– Cornell Capa, Photographer and ICP Founder

How do you tell a story in a photograph? And how do you add a new angle or perspective to it? Telling Stories Differentlyis the name of our new photo Mission with the International Center of Photography (ICP). You could win ICP membership and get your photo exhibited in New York – so what are you waiting for? Grab your camera, get creative and tell us a story!
