27 shots | Changing perspectives
27 Shots | Changing perspectives is a on-going photography project. In this project I give individuals a disposable camera and a questionaire with 27 questions. Each question needs to be answered by taking a photo. The project has been released in Cape Town, Reykjavik, Traena, Bali, Newark in a refugee camp.
The impact of this project is wonderful. You see people searching for ‘the good things in life’ since all the questions have a positive focus. In this project we challenge people to ‘capture’ their thoughts and perspectives on life by photographing their habitat.
Words are powerful, there for we release hope by spreading positive posters worldwide. These words of Hope have been released in Yokohama, Sydney, London, Bratislava, Reykjavik, Cape Town, Oslo, Copenhagen, Jerusalem, Bogota, Vilnius, Paris, Barcelona, San Fransicso, New York and Delhi and many other cities. Capital of Happiness aims to beautify cities by connecting people through art, storytelling and creativity. In this project we activate creativity and ownership by getting the local community involved – by spreading and creating positive posters.
A big succes and confirmation are the wonderful emails I received about the effect of reading the texts on the posters.
Want to help spreading? Or do you have a great four letter sentence to put on a posters. Just shoot a e-mail.
A good news paper
Capital of Happiness all started with the idea of creating a good news paper. I was tired of the focus on all the ‘negative’ things in the daily news – So I asked people globally to write down their stories about happiness.
Wordwide I received stories about big and small moments of Happiness. The best part was the activating the creativity and hearing people the enjoyment of writing and remembering old and almost forgotten memories – which result was a happy heart.
* The goal for 2017 is to combine all these stories from Hanoi, Rio, Amsterdam, Moscow, Yokohama, London and all the other small towns you never heard into a “newspaper” and to spread it both printed and online. (once a year)
