FlakPhoto Storytellers Project is Seeking Socially-Conscious Creatives

Andy Adams is a photo editor who runs a great site called FlakPhoto and one of the few Facebook Groups I actually enjoy being a part of (here). He recently announced that he’s teaming up with Winrock International, a non-profit whose mission is to “empower the disadvantaged, increase economic opportunity and sustain natural resources”. His goal is to organize a network of socially-conscious creatives all over the world and if anyone can do it, it’s Andy.

You can read more about Winrock’s work here. Now, if you’re a visual storyteller that cares about the world this is an opportunity to get involved. Winrock’s projects span everything from climate change to child labor, and they commission people to document these efforts. If you think you’d be a fit for potential storytelling job assignments simply fill out the FlakPhoto Storytellers Application.

Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
