Photography News by David Clark Cause : On this Human Rights Day, global partner UN Human Rights, Photography 4 Humanity and creator David Clark Cause unveil a unique photography exhibit at the United Nations that features the work of the 2019 Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize Recipient Sameer Al-Doumy, an image that captures a married couple drinking coffee in the remains of their home in Douma, Syria. Also, on display are the top ten finalist images from around the world.

Photography 4 Humanity is an international initiative that calls on photographers around the world to bring to life the power of human rights through their images. Highlighting the most compelling human rights imagery - illustrating courage, despair, hope, injustice, compassion in ways small and large, the images serve to inspire people to personally get involved and take a stand for human rights.

At the core of the Photography 4 Humanity initiative is a global call to action for amateur and professional photographers alike, to submit images for an annual competition where the top finalists are recognized each year.

The exhibit that opens today, Human Rights Day, highlights the Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize Recipient's winning image, as well as the top ten finalists of the Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize Competition and will serve to inspire photographers to document the power of human rights around the world. Photography 4 Humanity is created and organized by David Clark Cause (DCC) in collaboration and support of UN Human Rights.

"We are proud to support Photography 4 Humanity, as art has the ability to transcend borders and speak truth to power. It also has the power to galvanize global mobilization for human rights, and at the same time honor artists who passionately use their work to promote and protect the rights of others," said Laurent Sauveur, Chief External Outreach, UN Human Rights.

"The Photography 4 Humanity Global Challenge was created to inspire not only photographers, but the entire photography community to develop a platform to promote social justice around the world," said David Rose, President of Photography 4 Humanity. "We are honored to celebrate the amazing photographs from across the globe that are on display at the United Nations today, but would also like to thank the eminent jury who worked diligently to select them."

2019 Eminent Judges included:
Shahidul Alam – Photographer, Author
Kristen Ashburn – Photographer, Author
Elisabeth Biondi – Photography Editor, Author
Robert Clark – Photographer
Yan Cong – Photographer
Ruth Eichhorn – Photography Editor
Robert Pledge – Photography Publisher, Author

"The results from this year's global competition were truly overwhelming," said Alexandra Buffer, Executive Director of Photography 4 Humanity. "We received thousands of incredible submissions from around the world from both amateur and professional photographers alike. We hope to inspire positive change with the exhibition of these remarkable images. In addition to announcing the 2019 Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize Recipient, we are honored to also announce the global finalists."
