PHOTOGRAPHY: A TOOL FOR POLITICAL CHANGE?

Mona Miri:
Images must be visually compelling and tell a story. Photography is a very powerful tool to highlight important humanitarian and environmental issues (www.monamiri.com). When we see images of degradation, starvation, pollution or natural disasters, we want to make a difference.

Photographers need to be telling stories about their world, providing a voice for the subjects and make us think differently about conventional wisdom.

IMPACT
It must be a combination of the photos and the facts or ideas behind them that can change people's view. Not just photos alone.

An image is a very powerful weapon but a person must show the correct view instead of a distorted one.

Photo is a powerful tool that bring issues to the attention of the big decision-makers. But it is the campaign with images that makes the biggest difference

Money is influence, influence is access and that is what makes the world go round, not pictures
