Our photojournalists take great, sometimes life threatening risks to capture compelling, informative images that shape the way we view the world. We believe a free press and independent journalism are essential to an informed society. We hold our photographers to the highest standards of journalism and with training and support we enable them to work as safely as possible, so we all have deeper insight into conflicts and events that shape our lives.
