In this difficult pandemic time there is much focus on bad news, some people are demotivated for most activities, even photography and creativity. Many people are dealing with psychical challenges.
My answer to this situation was to found a new photography group at facebook, https://www.facebook.com/groups/228943948478180/ a group that should help to focus on other thoughts, on own emotions and not on the daily bad news from far away places in the world. The aim of this group is to have a meeting point with pictures and discussions that starts a thinking process and maybe have a positiv personal impact for some of the participants.
Every week a new theme challenges to work with an emotional concept, for example «happiness», «energy» and «movement». Participants of this group are asked to post a picture and a text in relation to the theme. In addition comments on other pictures and texts are requested.
New themes are chosen, partly based on the pictures and texts posted before, and partly based on personal experiences and thoughts.
