Borderless Photography exhibits culture by celebrating diversity and embracing our collective humanity. Storytelling allows lessons of the past to be explored through the eyes of the present—key to creating a brighter future. The effort to disparage our enemy only detracts from growth. Progress endures when reasoning, rationality, and conversation is welcomed with civility. The continuous recognition of what fundamentally connects people is imperative to advancing our shared moral values.
Historical and cultural values and norms offer insight into ideas like national identity, religious ideology, and everything in-between that often manifests in conflict or camaraderie. 'Peeling back the layers' of these narratives opens up the possibility of understanding the human condition—reaching into the deepest parts of how we view others.
