We're delighted to be joined by award-winning photojournalist Robin Hammond to discuss the power of photography to bring change, and the fantastic work of his non-profit organisation Witness Change. Their mission statement reads "Stigmatized people are often excluded from their own stories. We use visual storytelling to support these people as they reclaim the narratives of their lives to achieve necessary change such as influencing policies, attitudes and behaviours that affect them."
Robin is a National Geographic Explorer and his career recognition includes the winning of two World Press Photo prizes, the RF Kennedy Journalism Award, six Pictures of the Year International Awards, the W.Eugene Smith Award for Humanistic Photography, the recipient of six Amnesty International awards for Human Rights journalism and being named by Foreign Policy as one of the 100 Leading Global Thinkers.
We'll be back for the final ever Togcast episode in a couple of weeks featuring Jim Mortram - don't miss it!
The Togcast is hosted by Sam Gregory (www.samgregory-photography.com)
