Impressions from the weekly food distribution by VZW DakAnt in Antwerp. All images with PL25mm F1.4 on Olympus E-3.
DakAnt collects and distributes food and other donations to people who have to deal with all kinds of hardship.
A large number of the volunteers are people who are in difficult situations themselves. They participate here not just for the food but for the sense of purpose.
This series will serve to illustrate the cause for an upcoming benefit event, the proceeds of which will be used to help continue operations of the organisation.
Emphasis of the series was on semi-"anonymous" general views and atmosphere. Portraits only from people who really asked for it.
I like this collection not only for the imagery but also for the illustrative impact of compassion. The coloring/processing blends well with the subject and increases the emotional setting....it is as if you blended BW, Sepia, and color for a fitting purpose. Photography with a purpose...the "story"...this is where you excel beyond those of us that pretend to be photographers! Great work, and inspirational in more than one way.
The guestbook is empty.
