World Portraits (Fair-trade Photography)

Updated: Oct 24, 2021

In 2019 I was approached by Wilma, who was working for Oxfam Novib at the time.

Wilma wanted to use a photo from my collection for the Oxfam Novib postcards and asked if she was allowed to do so.

"Of course, nice even".

And then in August 2021 an email from Wilma in my mailbox.

Wilma said that she had taken over World Portraits and that she wanted to breathe new life into this initiative. She was looking for photographers and asked "If I would be interested in working with her again by submitting photos to this site".

Of course I said yes to this great initiative and started working on it.

I recently posted 100 photos with model releases on the World Portraits Fairtrade Photography website.

In one of the posted photos you can see Junior Nyirenda with his heartwarming smile.

Junior always active, always smiling, playing and cheerful.

Never shy for a kind word or greeting.

If you want to see more photos, check out the World Portraits website
