For years I’ve documented human rights abuses around the world. I hoped my work would improve the lives of people I photographed. Sadly, for most, life remained largely the same. Something was missing. I realized that if making a difference is my goal, to witness and hope is not enough; change must be at the center of what I do. Witness Change was formed by a group of people who refuse to believe things must remain as they are. It was born out of the belief that people care, stories are powerful, and change is possible.

Witness Change produces highly visual storytelling on seldom-addressed human rights abuses. We expose oppression and humanize the oppressed. We amplify the voices of those who have survived abuse, we document the stories of those who have not, and we stand for the end of human rights violations for generations to come. We collaborate with experts and advocates to transform opinions, open minds, and change policies.
