Giving a voice to the voiceless: PhotoVoice wants to help the underrepresented share their stories

Photography is a powerful way for people to visually share their stories with the world. However, for many people, it can be very difficult to afford photographic gear and training. There is a lack of accessibility that PhotoVoice, a U.K.-based project, wants to address. Further, imagery can be an impactful way to instigate social change. PhotoVoice helps people across the world share their stories and what impacts their lives.

PhotoVoice needs funding to accomplish their objectives and there are a variety of rewards that people can receive for their contributions, including exclusive prints from photographers such as Martin Parr, Laura Pannack, Sarah Moon, Marcus Bleasdale, Philip Jones Griffiths and more.

That's not all though, Olympus has agreed to help PhotoVoice by offering consumers a special “PhotoVoice package.” The exclusive package includes an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, our Camera of the Year, a 45mm f/1.8 lens and a one-on-one training session with an Olympus expert to help you capture your best work with your new OM-D E-M1 Mark II. You can purchase it through the PhotoVoice website.
