Photographers, Photography for Change

This Instagram account is putting the spotlight on animal extinction – The Washington Post

A group of 25 photographers are taking to Instagram to raise awareness of the growing environmental crisis

 

A recent article in the Washington Post points us to an Instagram account that is highlighting the rapid pace of extinction that is facing many species on the planet.  As the article states, photographer Sean Gallagher and 24 other photographers are behind the Everyday Extinction account.

The images in the account are stunning, and sometimes painful to view, but they are telling an important story that’s often lost in the rapid news cycle.

The cliche, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” applies here.  I’m encouraged by these accounts and the photographers that tell the stories for those that can’t speak for themselves.
