Across the globe, there are people living in luxury, in comfort, in poverty, in difficulty. He firmly believes that, through a massive concerted effort, we can help to improve the lives of our fellow mankind; the less fortunate, the underprivileged, the ones struggling daily just to survive, and more. He wishes to explore these places, understand their cultures, help these people, and document all of these in order to share, educate, and raise awareness about the disparity in living conditions. Raising awareness is the foundation of humanitarian initiatives. Irvin is confident that a strong foundation will result in a constant flow of support for sustainable aid. He has seen people and communities coming together to raise funds and provide aid for various unfortunate events. However, there is still a lot more to be done. Therefore, Irvin believes that it is key to reach out to the masses, increase the awareness, and allow them to come together and provide a joint effort to make a difference.
Irvin hopes to, one day, be able to realize these dreams. He wishes to seek positions and projects which he can have a part in towards exploring, conserving nature, and improving humanitarianism.
Irvin says, “Photography is a tool, a system, a platform, much like an artist’s brush or pen. It is easy to wield a brush or a pen. It is easy to own cameras, equipments, and a photography system. However, it is only a handful that can truly reach out with their works. The essence of greatness is not determined by your tools, equipment, or system; it is determined by who you are, your visions, imagination, and morality. Actions and meaning are what earns one respect.”
“It is not about what you use. It is about what you do with what you use.”
