This page is a place to share best of your shots from around the world that you think may inspire for more social awareness. All captures of human condition that make us understand people, feel an empathy with others within different social, cultural, urban and rural environments are welcome. Forgotten people, less fortunate, poverty, the scenes displaying generosity, intimacy, genuinely interest, authenticity, loyalty, relationship, vulnerability, appreciation, anything about people's personal lives or interactions in a society during daily lives, an event or a place or something that makes us feel what is going on and become socially more aware of others' conditions. I'd love to reshare your impressive people photography posts on this page's stream.
Social awareness is our ability to accurately pick up on emotions in other people and understand what is really going on. Empathy and understanding are most fundamental in it: thinking about the other persons' needs, feelings and perceptions before our own point of view. But researches tell us we're not very good at this any more. Furthermore, too many people want everyone else to conform to their particular ways without understanding others and without acknowledging others' concerns and issues. Social issues are issues which relate to people's personal lives and interactions. Being socially aware helps people take others' situation and needs into account as much as possible. It allows us to adopt some internal stuff to lead to stronger connections in our relations with others. As we improve social awareness we also improve our experience of life. Photography – as a phenomenal art form allowing us to share our experiences, thoughts and emotions with others– can be used to help inspire for more social awareness as we can record moments and document scenes of social issues that helps us feel a connection with other human beings in meaningful ways which might not have been possible otherwise.
