Zukunftsstiftung Entwicklung

The Zukunftsstiftung Entwicklung cooperates with 84 projects in 20 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. With the support of local partners, the foundations for an independent life are dignified. Initiative people are supported in their actions for an ethical, ecological and social world – in a dialogue-based cooperation at eye level.

The Zukunftsstiftung Entwicklung contributes to building bridges between people here and there – between realities of life in different countries; Bridges aiming to improve living conditions, exchange and understanding. The focal points of the project work are organic farming, holistic health promotion, emancipatory education, people and environmental rights, the expansion of small businesses and transparent microcredits accompanied by training as well as the use of renewable energies. In Tamshiyacu, in addition to the purchase of forest land, the foundation supports the agro-ecological project and the expansion of the biodynamic educational farm.

  • Improving the income situation of Amazonian families
  • Creation of jobs in nature conservation and permaculture
  • Protection of primary forest and reforestation of Purma

Photos by Magnus Arrevad

Over the past 10 years I have shot editorial images, portraits and feature content for a diverse range of national and international companies, organisations and individuals. Recent major commissioned series have included artisanal and small-scale mining operations in Mongolia, education in Uganda, as well as cacao deforestation and agriculture projects in Peru.

Clients across the world value my work’s ability to bring out the distinct visual personality of each subject and organisation. I work towards photography that engages and pulses with emotion and energy.

My work has been exhibited across Europe and North America and acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London as well as numerous private collections.
