Humanity

For my photojournalism project I am going to tell a story about humanity through photographs. I want to cover the different sides thats humanity has. The best sides to humanity such as human curiosity. We have an urge and desire for adventure and to experience feelings we never thought we could feel. Then theres the less attractive side to humanity. That is poverty and the struggle to live and the struggle for freedom due to lack of money and good health. For this ill have to photograph poverty and find a way to show that people are in a constant search for money. Not because they necessarily want it but because they need it to survive in the current system we have. For me to show the best side of humanity I need to create photos that show adventure and curiosity. And for the bad side of humanity ill need to photography poverty and injustice.

These images show the negative side of humanity, the side of suffering and poverty:

Curiosity and adventure in Humanity:

Being curious in humanity is having the desire to learn and experience new things. This could be exploration of the outdoors, taking part in sports, exploring a city, adventure, doing something for the first time and learning.

Here are images I think represent human curiosity:
