Resilience can mean many things to different people, spanning art, culture, history, language, science and nature, to name but a few. What is fascinating about resilience is that it may not be limited to words. Photography can be used to explore a highly ambiguous term by revealing its meaning through pictures. Not long ago IHRR held an online photo competition to see how people viewed resilience from their perspective. What we received in response was a wide range of photos, from portraits of people to landscapes, ways of life and survival. These photos tell stories of resilience in both personal and universal ways. Since we couldn’t include all of the photos in the next issue of our magazine Hazard Risk Resilience, we decided to post some of the runners-up here for everyone to see.
