Behind the scenes on Instagram: Today Clay Cook

4/08/2016 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments

Today we present a new section we call "Behind the scenes on Instagram". We would like to share more behind the scenes videos, but everyday is more difficult to found something stunning. People love this kind of images on Instagram (@iso1200magazine) and a lot of readers want to see the final images too.

Them we thought that it would be a good idea to share these pieces of art on the blog. Our first photographer is Clay Cook (website). Let me know what you think on the comments below.

When the idea sparked to create this portrait series, I knew it would impact people. But, I didn't realize how impactful it would be on myself. Everyone has a story, but not everyone has the platform to tell that story, including these young adults who have been through hell. With this project, I hope to give a voice to the voiceless. See the series on my Instagram feed or blog! - said Clay Cook-

Our project in Ethiopia focused on the foundation Youth Impact, which provides shelter, food and a path for homeless children located in the city of Addis Ababa. I knew the project would involve children who have struggled. Children who have stories. I wanted to tell their story the only way I know how, through imagery. During our time on the ground, I photographed a series of portraits that bring life to impoverished adolescents living through the shelter and highlight blossoming young adults who have so much to owe to their mentors. Each portrait was captured in the very shelter they survived and thrived. Hopefully, this series provides a voice that they so yearn to have. This is Amanual Haile, an orphan who parents perished during the famine that struck the nation a decade ago. At the age of 12, he joined the Youth Impact shelter and has since successfully graduated college. Over the course of April I'll be sharing a few selections from this portrait series as well as many of the images I captured during our adventure through Ethiopia. If you want to know more, be sure to watch the documentary, watch the behind the scenes and read our story. (LINK IN BIO)
