Mission

There is so much beauty in the world around us – in nature, architecture, people, and places. You only need to slow down, look around, and see it. Really see it. And let it touch you, grab you emotionally, opening your mind to new perceptions, new realities, even new ways of being.

Our mission here at JoinTheWorld’sBeauty (JTWB) is to bring you some of that beauty, captured in stunning photographs by Thomas Haberman, accompanied by stories and even philosophical words. Enjoy the interplay between image and word; let them open your mind, heart and soul. Here at JTWB, global storytelling meets photography in a dreamy, thought-provoking, feel-good, and sophisticated way. Furthermore, Join The World’s Beauty is striving to spread positivity and wanderlust.

These photos will take you to places you have never been, to places on your “bucket list.” And, they will also take you, perhaps, to familiar places. But viewed through “fresh eyes,” with a different focus, new perspectives and angles, and amazing lighting. Images and moments frozen in time, captured forever, allowing us to revisit and re-experience that place, moment, or seemingly simple detail in life anew. And, if we can learn to look with an open mind, perhaps that photo will reveal new beauty. It might give fresh insights, lead to deeper emotions, and surprising connections, each and every time we look at it.    


Philosophy

Even those fortunate enough to travel the globe can never experience it all. After all, no place, no vista, no face, is ever the same twice. The passing days and seasons bring change. The light changes, casting new shadows, changing colors, revealing hidden secrets, new beauty. There is art in almost everything – and nature is the foundation of so much. The cast of characters on the stage before us changes. What do we see in them? And what are they telling us? What can we learn from them? And indeed, from the scene we are looking at?

Sometimes it’s hard to stop, to look, to freeze the moment. And even if we can, we may not have found or explored all the other angles, all the different lighting, to reveal the deepest truths. Are we taking the macro-view, or “zooming in” to focus on a detail? The smallest and simplest things can have a profound beauty, rivalling any grand landscape unfolding before us.

Join us on this journey exploring this marvelous world of ours – in every detail! Share in the beauty of this planet, captured in Thomas Habermann’s truly artistic photos, and explored in our blog. It’s an ever-unfolding, magical journey into the essence of beauty, of life, of our creations and those of nature. And this is only a small sample. Let yourself explore even further and find inspiration for living life to the fullest. To get inspiration far beyond this site, visit Thomas’ World Collection of extraordinary photography.


About Thomas Habermann

Tom-Signature-StyleThomas is a global citizen who has traveled the world extensively, while developing the eye of an artist. He is now home in Los Angeles, passionately photographing and artistically – almost poetically – capturing the beauty of this world in various forms through his lens. Although his creative profession brought him to diverse Los Angeles, he does not plan to stop exploring the globe, camera in hand.

Born in West Berlin, Germany, he saw the fall of the Berlin Wall. He experienced the incredible transformative power of freedom on former East German residents. With a thirst for beauty, and a new-found appreciation for true freedom, he set off to experience new places. He explored new cultures and new ways of living and being. Along the way, he discovered a passion for photography. His camera is his most important tool, while the world and its people are his artistic playground.

Power of Light

Always attracted by shape, texture and color, he first studied graphic design. Following that, he began to incorporate basic architectural photography into his real estate career. But his passion, photography, was calling to him. He even crossed oceans to master the art of photography. Studying art in New York City, and taking workshops with renowned artists, he was introduced to the infinite possibilities of light shaping and modification. Thomas knew of the difference the lighting made in photographing buildings and landscapes, but when he applied it to portraits, he was amazed by how much of a person’s soul and character could be brought to the surface – in just one carefully crafted shot. “It was,” he says, “as if I had discovered light and photography for the first time.”  To get an idea, please visit his Headshot Photography

Creative Passion

And so, he cast off his conventional life-style, and followed his heart and his passion, spending over a consecutive year traversing the globe, immersing himself in the people and the cultures, the architecture and places of great natural beauty. Now, he has visited 50+ Countries and more on his bucket list. You are invited to share his vision, to see the world through his eyes, and to also open your heart and mind, to live life fully and as your true self.
