Photography 4 Humanity

This exhibit is an international initiative that calls on photographers from around the world to bring the power of human rights to life through their images. Highlighting the most compelling human rights imagery – illustrating courage, despair, hope, injustice and compassion in ways small and large – the images serve to inspire people to personally get involved and take a stand for human rights.

The exhibit is developed to highlight the top finalists of the Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize Competition and to inspire photographers to document the power of human rights around the world. It is created and organized by David Clark Cause (DCC) in collaboration with and in support of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

Voices of Resilience

Due to COVID-19, an additional two million girls are projected to be at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM) by 2030. This exhibit raises awareness and encourages action regarding FGM, emphasizing the effect that COVID-19 has had on exacerbating this harmful practice. It features stories of girls and women that highlight the successes that have been achieved over the past decades in the urgent global fight to abandon FGM. 

Voices of Resilience is organized by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
