GroundTruth’s “A New Light” is all about seeing the world through a different perspective.

 

 

Taking a picture has never been easier. Almost everyone carries a phone with a camera capable of capturing high quality images. But despite the proliferation of technology, it still takes a great eye and persistence to be an exceptional visual storyteller.

 

For the past five years, GroundTruth has provided a space to showcase the work of talented photographers from around the world who are relatively new to the craft.

 

In celebration of our five year anniversary, our photo editor Richard Sennott curated some of the most impactful and memorable images we have featured in this space. This selection highlights the width and depth of these photographers’ perspectives’ and how they approach the challenges, fears and wonders of our times.
