Photography as Activism and Poetry of Witness: A Dialogue Between Forms

Photography has long been used to create social and environmental awareness and drive change. The image exposes what we see and guides us towards a place of greater understanding and respect for one another. As activists armed with a camera we reveal a greater story.
Poetry of witness situates the writer’s lens in our public spaces revealing the consequences of experience. The testimony becomes indelible as image and evidence. Poets, working with the photographs as inspiration, find their voices and bear witness to foster awareness as the story grows beyond the canvas and the page.
