Documentary Photography Projects : 2009 - present
Inspirational and very compelling, so totally different from my previous post, are the works or rather stories of these photographers. Have a look yourselves.
Through grantmaking, exhibitions, and training workshops, the Documentary Photography Project supports photographers whose work addresses social justice and human rights issues that coincide with the mission of the Open Society Foundations.
