Photography has the ability to change the world -- and our perception of it.
At times it can feel like the only thing being documented these days is negative news. But photos that capture small moments of compassion have the power to show humankind at its best -- and these are the images we at HuffPost Good News think we all need to be exposed to more.
To help spread more of this type of imagery, we collaborated with the photographer community at EyeEm, seeking photos that left them feeling hopeful about their fellow humans.
The photo submissions below show a breezy moment among workers in Myanmar, a mother and daughter sharing a hearty laugh after a long separation, a passionate wedding performer giving it his all and much more.
Check out the powerful photos below that allow us to see the world through a human lens.
