The Week On EyeEm: Volume 32

By Fabian Plock - 3 min read

Our weekly round-up of outstanding content uploaded onto EyeEm, each volume of The Week on EyeEm is unique - echoing certain details, social narratives, and creative techniques shaping our world. This week we are bringing you a thought-provoking curation and commentary from our Editor, Fabian Plock.

In a time of rising use of fear tactics and populism I can’t help but feel grateful to have the opportunity to travel. To connect with people of different backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs. Where a simple meal and discussion about life becomes an opportunity to overcome language barriers and differing social etiquette. Travel enables me to see with my own eyes rather than just blindly believe, and capture in a memory to cherish and a story to tell.

With every travel experience I am realising that people on this planet are not all that different. Our fundamental experiences are the same - we all face fears, hopes, dreams, and joy as we make our way through life. If one gets the chance to leave prejudices behind and head out there one might end up not just feeling at home in a cultural or social circle, town or country, but in the world at large.

“The most dangerous worldviews are the worldviews of those who have never viewed the world.”

– Alexander von Humboldt
