Value Revealed

Photography confronts people’s worldview and
strategic thinking to move beyond themselves and
into the lives of those captured by injustice. Within
tribal mindsets, everyone is affected through one.
So it is as a global community.
Tasha M G Hakeem spent five months (2005/06)
throughout Brazil – in Amazon tribes, within the
favelas and on the streets with those gripped by
injustice issues. Through the lives of
children, “VALUE REVEALED” not only shows the
reality of an issue - it aims to bring value and show
dignity within these lives affected by injustice.
Within our global community and the globalization
process, we can choose to learn from the tribal
mindset of one affecting the entire tribe. In our
global community, it is time to step outside the
comforts of the West and step into the shoes of
those around us - to expose the issues and stand
for the weak of our Community.
