Photos for Social Change

Beth Kanter posted an incredible photo today on blogher and netsquared (click on one of them to see it) taken from the camera_rwanda blog. Camera_Rwanda is using photography to raise awareness and money to send Rwandan orphans to college. You must visit this blog and see the photos.

The photo above is from another beautiful photo blog called, Lives in Focus. They don't post often, but when they do, it is worth the wait. The photos are incredible. Right now they are documenting India's HIV positive population:

Using audio recorders, photographs and video, we plan to document the lives of families struggling to buy ARV drugs to keep a family member healthy; the challenges that stigmatized AIDS patients face in trying to earn enough money to buy the lifesaving treatment; activists desperately searching for new sources of inexpensive ARV drugs or lobbying the Indian government to grant compulsory licenses to continue producing cheap drugs.

    I noticed her work before and she is a contact. Today, out of the corner of my eye, I noticed that beautiful photo and got sucked in ... her work is amazing, isn't it?

    Thanks for the link to this other collection of photos.
