We all know pictures taken in times of war. Famous ones and the ones we get used to because we see them everyday in any and all media.

But a picture of peace, what is that? Is it a peaceful-looking picture, images of harmony, friendship, tranquillity, and light? Or any photograph taken during absent of war, without danger to life and limb, like driving to work, filling the refrigerator with stuff from the supermarket, brushing teeth and taking a shower?

And would these types of images remind us how lucky we are living life in peace? Would they encourage us to stand rigorously up against those forces that threaten or deny defenseless, harmless people living life in peace?

I am somewhat uncertain what a „peace picture“ can show or can accomplish but it seems to be nonetheless worth a try. If only to inspire our hopeful dreams.
