MAJORITY WORLD IN LONDON, THE SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE PHOTO AGENCY, ANNOUNCES PUBLISHING PARTNERSHIP WITH SKIRA INTERNATIONAL IN MILAN
Press Release 8 March 2012
Additional corporate partner sought to join project to showcase new creative photographic talent from the majority world.
Majority World, the “photo agency with a difference” that reveals and promotes under represented local photographic talent from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, has joined forces with Skira International Publishing, the highly respected Italian publishing house in Milan, to boost the visibility of locally sourced majority world imagery across the globe.
Majority World and Skira will be using the Responsible Business Exhibition 2012 to kick start the search for another corporate partner to join the project. The objective is to publish and distribute internationally our first MAJORITY WORLD ALMANAC 2012, a survey of stunning locally sourced images from the developing world which tell the positive, inspiring, and untold stories of everyday life in the developing world, seldom covered by the western press. The project aims to widen the number of countries and photographers represented, and to create a more balanced understanding of contemporary life in the developing world as interpreted through the eyes of Majority World‘s growing community of creative photographers.
Sponsor/s would receive full publishing credit, recognition, with associated events on an annual basis. By providing for majority world photographers to make their work visible globally, the project will bring direct economic benefit through assignments, publishing sales and global sales of their stock imagery.
