Photographer and Moving Walls exhibition co-curator Susan Meiselas discusses documentary photography’s potential to connect and move audiences by “expanding the circle of knowledge” about human rights and social justice issues.
This film features a variety of work by photographers supported by the Open Society Foundations Documentary Photography Project (DPP). The project funds photographers who go beyond documentation, using images to foster civic engagement, organizing, advocacy, outreach, public awareness education, and media attention.
