Celebrating One Year of "The World Through My Eyes," a Monthly Instagram Take-over Series by Photographers from Around the World

Nov 18, 2016

This November 2016, Carnegie Council celebrates the 12th Instagram Take-Over in a series titled, "The World through My Eyes," where talented photographers from around the world are assigned to "take over" the Council's Instagram account for a week out of every month.

"We believe that photography is a powerful tool to increase empathy for others across borders and cultures—and right now, nothing is more important," said Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal at the start of this new initiative.

This month's photographer is freelance British journalist Jack Losh, with a stunning series of photos of Eastern Ukraine, from the front line to everyday life. See all the photos in this series at

Previous photographers are as follows: British-Australian Helen Osborne on life in the nation of Georgia; Alysha Naidu with photos of her native South Africa; Lebanese-British Natalie Naccache with scenes of Beirut; Rena Effendi, born in Azerbaijan and raised in the USSR, with photos of migrants at the Greek-Macedonian (FYROM) border; British Rob Pinney with photos of “The Jungle” migrant camp in Calais; American Tyson Sadler with photos of the migrant crisis on the Greek island of Lesbos; Indian-born Arati Kumar-Rao with photos of the effects of climate change in the Sundarbans on the India-Bangladesh border; Troy Enekvist from Sweden on daily life in Iraqi Kurdistan; Iranian Jalal Shams Azaran on the 2012 Earthquake in Northwestern Iran; Kashmiri Ahmer Khan on the unrest in Kashmir; and Ghanaian Subramaniam Kwabena Owusu on life in Ghana.
