About The Meero Foundation:

Technical evolutions have always transformed our practices and modified our perception of the world. The evolution to the digital image - along with new ways of expression, communication or socialization - creates new challenges for image makers.

Instant, connected, multiplied, images are now shared in all places and circumstances. But are we still able to appreciate them, or let them have enough impact? Visual artists have always confronted the contemporary challenges that we face, from the conservation of our natural environment, to the fight against poverty and discrimination, to the necessity of access to health care and education, as well as  ways to reinforce the solidarity among people. In the “Age of the Image”, we believe that there is still much more that imagery can do to help make the world a better place.

The Meero Foundation proposes to give back to photographers, whether professionals or amateurs. It aims to give them expertise and awareness for a better impact of their images, and to stand out in our current visual culture. We thus hope to become a trusted partner for photographers who wish to look for additional meaning in their artistic purpose, and ultimately define the role they want to play as visual storytellers.

Through our innovation-driven program, we encourage the recipients of the Meero Foundation’s actions to help define the creative processes of tomorrow and to tell impactful stories to maximize positive social change. True to our values, we further envision the Meero Foundation as a hub for expression, diversity, solidarity, the sharing of human values, and as a perpetual visual laboratory.
