“we have to do with the past only as we can make it useful to the present and the future”
abolitionist and statesmen #frederickdouglass, who died on february 20, 1895.
escaping slavery in 1838, douglass became a powerful advocate for equality and social reform through seminal speeches and publications.
alongside this, douglass understood the agency of photography, using the new medium to counter stereotypical representations of race. the most photographed american of the 19th century, he wrote: “the few think, the many feel...the few comprehend a principle, the many require an illustration.”

The appeal of finding your second space in the world is hard to deny as #travel continues to become a bigger part of our lives. the imagery around travel is controlled less by travel companies and more by individual travelers exploring beyond the usual paths. it’s about connecting to #cultures that one might not have exposure to and feeling free from the tethers that brought you on the #journey in the first place. 📷: ricardo pires/getty images | #gettyimagescreative #creativeinsightsbygettyimages
