Talk to me…

What makes a great photo?

 Its the photo’s ability to talk to you, to evoke an emotion within you.YoungAfricanWoman_PLynch

“This young girl from Johannesburg was looking through the fence at Khaya Centre Mount Olive a moment before I captured this shot. You could tell she wanted to go inside and experience the love, joy and laughter that was coming through the fence and spilling into the neighbourhood, but for some reason she did not enter. Quickly the longing in her face was replaced with the hardened stare you see here. The moment touched me”.  

–Paul Lynch, WorldPix Founder and Photographer 

One of the most powerful, yet often the most difficult components to master in photography is capturing emotion and feeling.  A great image is one that conveys a mood and pulls the viewer into the scene. If a photo tells a story,  pulls at your heartstrings or begs a question, the image has fulfilled its purpose.

Emotion in a photograph is what helps the viewer connect with a scene. The beauty of a photo is that the same image can evoke different emotions for different people, happiness, joy, sorrow, despair or hope.

What most photographers would like to achieve is to have you experience the emotion they experienced while capturing that moment:  the real reason the photo was taken in the first place.

Our New Mission

As the Covid-19 outbreak continues to spread around the globe, we wanted to let all of our affiliates, donors, supporters and causes know we are still working to assist those most in need.  

We are grateful to have a very dedicated team positioned around the world who are all able to continue their work helping when and where they can.

Currently our focus is to support our causes with buying food and diapers for the children they serve, more vegetables will need to be grown for the clinics working with people who are HIV positive. We know there will be more displacement of people who are already less fortunate and struggling and WorldPix exists to support these issues.

The time to help is now, more so now than in the last 100 years!

We humbly request that you think about how you can help and act on that while staying safe and taking heed of important information and direction to help bring Covid-19 under control.

Stay safe
WorldPix team
