Everyone sees the world differently, and when we put our images and unique visual perspectives together, it can create an amazing patchwork of visual stories.
The Huffington Post has teamed up with EyeEm, a global community of photographers, to bring visual storytelling to life. Anna Dickson, HuffPost’s photography director, joined HuffPost Live host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani to discuss the collaboration.
“We came up with the moving image series, talking about Huffington Magazine and trying to figure out a way that we could highlight really beautiful photography in a very moving way,” explains Dickson.
A recent call for submissions from HuffPost readers asked "What makes you look up and thrive?" and drew in thousands of submissions with wildly varied perspectives.
“It’s always a little bit different every time,” says Dickson. “When we think somebody might just submit a beautiful tree, it ends up being like a city scape or something that we wouldn’t necessarily associate with beautiful automatically… We are all looking at the world slightly differently and it gives us an opportunity to highlight how people are seeing.”
