Photography serves to define the window through which we view, interpret, and communicate our societal ideals and problems. It guides our understanding of beauty and pain, of joy and sorrow, of accomplishment and struggle. A photograph can be a call to action, or a call for contemplation. Photographs are capable of altering our perception of the world that surrounds us every day.
We believe that a single image can define our organisation and convey our mission to the public in a manner that no other medium is capable of doing alone.
Do you want to give back to the World by volunteering your time and services to help us? By connecting with our needs and your passion of photography, we shall be a powerful team whereby you will gain experience and exposure while we shall gain professional quality imagery to use within YUVA.
Images may be worth 10,000 words, but the best ones leave you speechless.
Humans are visual. We rely heavily on our sense of vision to guide us through life. Our emotions and judgment are permanently intertwined with our visual senses. It is through imagery that photographers attempt to build connections with the audience. Likewise, it is through the use of imagery that YUVA will build a connection with its audience. We firmly believe that the power of imagery to make these connections cannot be underestimated.
