Right Before Your Eyes: Photography Driven By Social Change

Right Before Your Eyes honors the work of photographers who bring attention to the most pressing public policy, human rights, and environmental concerns, through collaboration with existing nonprofit organizations. Presented by PhotoPhilanthropy, an organization that promotes social change and charitable work by connecting photographers with nonprofits, the visual stories expressed by these mutually inspiring partnerships have the potential to influence policy around the world.

The exhibition is free, hosted in the Visitors Lobby of the United Nations building, and open to the public August 16 – September 10. For detailed information about visiting requirements and hours, visit the “Exhibit” page on the United Nations website.
