Human rights photography has pursued an ethics and a practice for photography that distinguishes it from much of social documentary photography and photojournalism. It has focused not only on wars, political upheavals and environmental catastrophes but also increasingly on issues of health, gender, work and education in their local dimensions. This colloquium explores the history, theory and practice of human rights photography by bringing together a distinguished group of international scholars and practicing photographers.
