Moving Walls 19 Documentary Photography Exhibition

movingwalls The Open Society Foundations invite photographers to submit a body of work for  consideration in the Moving Walls 19 group exhibition.

Moving Walls is an exhibition series that features in-depth and nuanced explorations of human rights and social issues. Thematically linked to the Open Society Foundations mission, Moving Walls is exhibited at Open Society offices in New York and Washington, D.C., and includes seven discrete bodies of work.

Moving Walls recognizes the brave and difficult work that photographers undertake globally in their documentation of complex social and political issues. Their images provide the world with human rights evidence, put faces onto a conflict, document the struggles and defiance of marginalized people, reframe how issues are discussed publicly, and provide opportunities for reflection and discussion. Through Moving Walls, the Foundations honor this work while visually highlighting the mission of our foundation to staff and visitors.

Since its inception in 1998, Moving Walls has featured over 100 photographers whose work address a variety of social justice and human rights issues that coincide with the Foundations’ mission.
