Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Haitian Women Photograph Their Lives

My professional background is in photojournalism, so I'm a sap for stories in which people learn photography and then document their lives. In this short film from the Dominican Republic, Haitian migrant women talk about how learning and doing photography changed their perceptions of the world. For some women, it also changed the way the world perceived them.

This story is part of our Wednesday ViewChange video series.

What a touching story. I know how beautiful photography can be. I discovered photography after the tragic loss of my father and it really helped me to get in touch with myself.

That's why I find this story very touching.

Thanks for Sharing,
