About PAPA 

PAPA – participating artists’ press agency, has a different structure, a different motivation and a different set of rules than existing press agencies, and therefore generates a very different kind of news compared to what we are familiar with. 

For most people news equals reports of disasters, wars, revolutions and economic recession. Reporters from all over the world fly to the scene of the disaster to report it to their audience back home. 

Then there is the background to this sort of news, reported by journalists who devote themselves for a long period to a single subject, sometimes in their own country, but most often a long way from home. 

PAPA focuses on a very different layer of news. PAPA is interested in how people all over the world, in every conceivable set of circumstances, fall in love, make themselves up, pose, get a hernia, express their opinions, sleep, educate themselves, entertain each other, and find a source of income. This news can be found on the street by venturing out with your camera. 

PAPA gathers this kind of news together with photographers all over the world, documenting events in their own countries.
