Fair Trade Photography

© Robin Utrecht

World Portraits is a unique collection of photographs of people from all over the world. The collection contains more than 10.000 images of 'models' from 52 countries. What makes World Portraits unique is that the person pictured shares in the profits. Each time a photo is sold, the portrayed receives a commission on the copyright.

This is the first worldwide initiative that makes sure that people, wherever they are in the world, receive money each time their photo is published. The people pictured aren't professional models, but 'ordinary' people who sign a model release contract on the spot.

World Portraits stands for:
Allowing the people in the photographs to share in the profits.
Pure photography: no make-up, no stylised environments.
