Shaping Our Future Together Photo Exhibition

One of my photographs was selected as among the most impactful 75 photos and inspiring stories in the “Shaping Our Future Together” exhibition, organised in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of the United Nations (UN75).

The exhibition showcases how staff of the UN system together with people around the world are working to build a better future. The photographs portray the faces of the many people served by the Organization in areas including peace and security, human rights, humanitarian aid, sustainable development and international law. In the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic, UN staff continue to strive to create a more equal, peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.

Endorsed by the UN75 Office, the exhibition has been organised by the United Nations Staff Recreation Council Photographic Society. Almost 600 photographs were submitted by nearly 250 photographers from 122 locations, representing 69 departments, offices, funds and programmes of the UN system, revealing the global commitment of the staff of the common system and the reach of the Organization’s work.
