A complete photo story is something which makes one understand the main objective for what it needs to be done, to bring a change to the masses, to show them light. Documenting people and the stories beyond the ordinary is one of the fascinating and daunting task in terms of Photojournalism. The Lives of those affected, the way they come into terms into reality & the very source for the ultimate word – Survival.

When we speak about a documentary photo story, we look at the change we can bring upon the individual or a community through the pictures. The Pictures are not a mere proof of their lives and struggles, it reflects the intensity at which the affected looks ahead, amidst all the forces pulling them down.

If you have any photography story with you, Feel free to share with us 121clicks[at]gmail.com, we will be more than happy to show your work in our site. Thanks in advance.

Portraits of William Hacker, a tremendous series of pictures showing his amazing talent towards photography. An ardent lover of film, Hacker started taking pictures from the age of 21 and he says he never seem to be completely satisfied with digital even if the content or composition was what he wanted it to be. “I always think of my portraits as a collaboration – I believe a successful portrait has to have just as much of the subject’s essence as the photographer’s or the image won’t be completely honest.”
