The great photographer Robert Capa, who shot some of the most iconic photos of the Second World War, put it this way: ‘If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.’ If you want to have a deep impact on what matters to you, don’t do things at remove. Invest yourself fully. Get close. Now, what does that even mean? First, getting close means moving beyond approaching an issue through the screen on your laptop or phone, or the filter of someone else’s interpretation, and instead finding a way to get to know the individuals whose lives are impacted.
