At the Blue Earth Alliance's Collaborations for Cause conference, documentary photographer Natalie Fobes sat down with PhotoWings to offer inspirational stories from her career, as well as her insights into the photographic medium. No stranger to the power of photography to create change, she may be best remembered for her harrowing coverage of the Exxon Valdez disaster in the pages of National Geographic. Fobes founded the Blue Earth Alliance along with Phil Borges in 1996 to act as an aid for documentary photographers who seek to create positive change through their storytelling.
Initially founded in order to assist photographers with funding for the projects, the Blue Earth Alliance has helped support 100 photographers since its inception. In this video, co-founder Natalie Fobes discusses the origin of the organization and some of the inspirational and crucial projects that the Blue Earth Alliance has assisted.
PhotoWings' mission is to highlight and help facilitate the power of photography to influence the world. We help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved.
