Photography as Activism
You want to look through the lens of your camera and change the world. You want to capture powerful moments in one click that will impact the minds of other people. Photographic images are one of the most popular tools used to advocate for social and environmental awareness. This can be as close to home as drug use, prostitution, or pollution or as far away as famine, war, and the plight of refugees and migrant workers.

His images and testimony were instrumental in creating the National Park System and garnering specific protection for Yellowstone National Park.
