Changing the world one photo at a time, photography for progressive organizations.

ABOUT ME

photo by Lisa Klinger

I first picked up a camera when I was eight years old, and never put it down. While working as a civil rights attorney, I began photographing cultural events for the Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission and political events for the Guardian, a progressive weekly newspaper in New York City, until it ceased publishing in the early nineties. I have documented the way of life and environments of the indigenous peoples in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Mexico and Ecuador. I am most interested in documenting the work of humanitarian organizations and NGOs that work for social and political change. Currently my client list includes the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey (ACLU-NJ) the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC); Amnesty International USA (AIUSA); the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS-Ecuador) and the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding.

      • And inspire me! 🙂 Thank you for that. I am thrilled that you enjoy the series. They are quite the fun I need each day to feel like I just don’t exist here; I am a part of it all somehow. If that makes sense.

      • It makes perfect sense. I think most photographers use their craft to try to understand and make sense on some non rational intuitive level of the world we live in. I know I do.

    • I thank you for your kind words, but I’m afraid you flatter me. I just see what I see and press the shutter
