Elizabeth Jordan photographs people around the globe in the midst of their daily lives in an effort to "take images of harsh or tough subjects and expose their
softer side, transforming them into images which are beautiful and
dignified, rather than horrible and hopeless – without diminishing the
crititical state of the subject itself.” "Social change through photography." (Elizabeth Jordan Photogaphy)
The works below are from her series on Rwanda and Ghana and for me are highly compelling, hyper-real, colour-saturated and completely absorbing. What do you think?
