Her... #portraits #blackandwhite #mother #becauseofher #people #lifestories #mum #natgeoyourshot #berraklajoie #annem #anneler #inspiration #blackandwhitestreetphotography Captured by the inspiration of the assignment “Because Of Her” on National Geographic Yourshot (Her father had asthma therefore he couldn’t work. She started to work at the age of 15 and took care of her parents. After her father died, she got married and took her mother in. Her knittings, sewings and ceramics helped the family budget while her 3 kids grew up wearing her wonderful designs. When she was 65, she started painting and created over 50 paintings. She fought through health problems and never gave up. She inspires me with her perseverance and her art of living. She is my mother.)

“Olwethu Pakasi lives in this small shack in Kayamandi township, near Stellenboscho, South Africa,” writes Your Shot photographer Jeff Kennel. “She earned this bike over the course of a year from the NGO Qhubeka. She uses it to get to college and her part-time job, something that was out of reach before. Olwethu inspires me because she is not defined by her circumstances, and fights every day for an education and opportunity.”

The Love of a Teacher | Photograph by Sơn Trương (@truonghaison)
.
“Two years ago, her father used gasoline to burn their house in a moment of anger. Mai Dieu suffered severe burns, approximately 60% [over her body]. Doctors were forced to cut her legs to save her life. Because of her appearance, she was worried and frightened to go to school,” writes Your Shot photographer Sơn Trương. “Thanks to her teacher’s love and her friend’s encouragement, Mai Dieu now communicates with her friends easily and expansively. In her opinion, her teacher is not only a second mother, but also the biggest love of her life.”

Hanging Out | Photograph by Darryl MacDonald (@clearbluephoto)
.
“In my late 30’s, my wife convinced me to put aside my career as a firefighter/medic and return my original aspirations as a professional photographer. Given my interest in non-traditional photography, the transition has been difficult to say the least. I’ve been tempted to give up a number of times, and my wife refused and helped me push forward,” writes Your Shot photographer Darryl MacDonald. “I now work full-time as a photographer. This is one of the many images taken around the globe of my wife patiently waiting for me during an assignment.”

“I love it Darryl. I hope you have repeatedly thanked your wife for encouraging you to pursue your original aspirations to be a photographer. Look again at your photo: you are underwater swimming with fishes and a shark — which is so different from your other career as a firefighter/medic. And what I really love is how your photos reveal she also shares your new adventures as a photographer…” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee).
