Here are some awesome photos representing Peace, by a range of artists. I hope they are as uplifting for you as they have been for me. CLICK ON EACH PICTURE to see the full range of the artist’s work along with background stories for some of these specific photos. You will be connected to the artists’ individual photography web page. This is also true for all the photos used in any of my posts.
The first photo was a photography project for a class. You can read more about this on the artist’s web site.

Pierre Pouliquin, the next photographer writes, “The Punjab Cultural Promotion Council (PCPC) ensemble is working relentlessly to promote a “Culture of Peace and International Friendship”. Dressed in their exotic traditional costume, the PCPC artists and dancers will perform popular folk dances of Punjab, namely Bhangra and Gidha. In various styles and symmetries, they will perform to the beat and sound of traditional drum and other folk instruments. This spectacular performance will invigorate the whole audience.”
Our third photographer known as The Zion View, dedicated the following photo to all those who were affected by recent bomb blast in Bangalore, Ahmedabad, and Jarkand in India.
The next photo comes from Carf who writes , “contrasting colors, contrasting realities, contrasting pasts, contrasting presents, contrasting futures and contrasting lives! Nevertheless, best friends, Matheus and Vando.” Click on photo for more of these boys’ stories. They both live in Brazil.
Danny Hammontree, our next photographer writes, “I met Dogman at Camp Casey in Washington DC. As soon as I saw him I knew I had to get a good photograph of him. I think in total I took about 60 shots of him throughout the 3 days I was in DC. When I photograph people I really try not being noticed because I want to get people as candid as possible. I wish I could post every photo I took of Dogman but you know… Maybe 1 or 2 😉 ”
