The Everyday Projects uses photography to challenge stereotypes that distort our understanding of the world. We are creating new generations of storytellers and audiences that recognize the need for multiple perspectives in portraying the cultures that define us.
We began 10 years ago with Everyday Africa. Since then, we have become a global community of visual storytellers — documentary photographers, journalists, artists, and more — all committed to using imagery to combat harmful misperceptions and to rise above persistent inequality. As a non-profit, we work to provide opportunities for our global community and to provide structure, support, and direction for the diverse and worldwide range of Everyday photography groups.
We believe in amplifying local voices and in shifting power away from monolithic narratives dominated by a Western, top-down approach to storytelling. We work toward a future of photojournalism and visual storytelling that is inclusive and anti-racist.
