About ThIS Project

This work was produced in June 2013 as part of the Photography and Human Rights Summer Program at New York University which is aimed at intermediate and advanced students from around the world. The six-week program, which is run in collaboration with the Magnum Foundation, is comprised of three courses and is designed to enable students to explore strategies for creating effective documentary projects in pursuit of human rights. The seven students in this year's program produced both multimedia and more traditional projects for their photo essays, which they developed through two studio courses and another one concentrating on critical studies. Professors included Elizabeth Kilroy, Susan Meiselas and Fred Ritchin; workshops were taught by Brian Palmer and Joe Richman. For more information on the program, see
