Fishing at the ocean
Fishing at the ocean by Alet Pretorius, photojournalist.
Photography broadens my view of the world. Being a photojournalist you are put in unfamiliar situations and recording such events gives you a better understanding of other people, cultures and events.
Seeing the beauty and the ugly of the world makes you appreciate your own life and makes you tolerant for others lives and way of living. We are all connected by a common thread but also individual.
Visual story telling is a very important tool to record history as pictures evoke emotion and are remembered long after the story is forgotten.
