During October 29-31, 2018, the Human Rights Defenders Summit gathered human rights defenders from across all corners of the world in Paris, France, to adopt a plan on action for the protection and promotion of human rights work.
I designed the Human Rights Defenders World Summit photo exhibit that was displayed on the fences outside of the venue, Espace Niemeyer, in Paris. The project was done in collaboration with the Fund for Global Human Rights (FGHR). It was promoted on FGHR’s Facebook page (graphic presented first).
The photo exhibit was later made into a photo essay to honor human rights defenders worldwide. Released December 10, 2018, the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the photo essay features the stories of grassroots activists supported by the Fund for Global Human Rights—ordinary people pushing to make the tenets of the declaration a reality for all.
