Photography is a powerful tool that can create awareness and effect change. The visual narrative created through photographs can move individuals to a place and understanding of people, geographies, and events that would otherwise be impossible. Used as a tool to document, educate, move, and inform, photographs can be a powerful resource in the efforts of human rights promotion when used effectively and ethically. Images, moving and still, are powerful, and yet we do not know exactly how they affect us and our world. Despite tremendous interest in the role of the visual in human rights espousal, only a few concerned individuals have discovered its influence.
