A few words of gratitude and some ideas for you after the ONE IMAGE MANY WORDS workshop in Warsaw on 26-28 August

πŸ˜€ I’m happy about these three days spent together with you and your photos. For several years, in the last week of August, I have traditionally conducted the course on photography in coaching “ONE IMAGE – MANY WORDS”. It was a very inspiring time πŸ’Ž I’m thankful to you for your openness, courage, curiosity and mutual exchange πŸ”₯

Some time ago, I followed my voice, dream, passion. I feel like I’ve come a long way with photography, and I’m still somewhere at the beginning.

One photo hides the whole story.

The Life Photo Album as a technique to work around your achievements, strenghts, supporting relationships in life and to plan next steps.

A photo as a Visual metaphor that helps to explain complex realities within us, such as feelings or emotions.

The Most Important Photo as a technique to work around your identity, values and current moment in life.

Taking photos as a technique to look for a new perspective on a defined coaching topic.

Watching family photos together can increase a sense of pride and respect in the family

Did you know that watching family photos together can increase pride and respect in the family?

Welcome to the fifth part of the “Peace and Joy at Home – The Power of Photography” article. Today, I share about watching family photos together. On a deeper level, it is about 🌱story-telling based on personal photos to build respect and a sense of uniqueness β˜€οΈ

🌱 Watching family photos together seems to be a simple topic and yet unique. Why?

🌱 Through the mean of our photos, we can take family members back in time to the moments when we were living in different circumstances and realities.

🌱 And authentic stories typically raise curiosity.

How to do it?

🌱 Bring your photos, sit with children and start telling stories and memories that are β€œhidden” in pictures. Often, one photo is enough to reveal a long story.

🌱 They take people in, engage, teach. We become SOMEONE with a story to tell.

🌱 Watching life photo albums is to see our biographies – and a sense of uniqueness, pride and respect is born.

I hope that my series about “Peace and Joy at Home – The Power of Photography” was inspiring for you.

Stay safe, Do Raniszewska
