This week is international Sustainability Week which connects people all over the world in order to bring sustainability into all aspects of our life. In 2015 193 UN member countries signed up to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) - from climate action and life on land to zero hunger and gender equality. These are very big and broad goals that none of us can achieve alone but as photographers, together, we play an important part in raising awareness and changing mindsets.
According to the latest Getty images trends report (https://creativeinsights.gettyimages.com/en/trends), photographers now, more than ever, need to be mindful of what they photograph and how it impacts the viewers. Photographs of people enjoying Coca-Cola in plastic bottles will unlikely get accolades.
