Photography’s power to advocate for children and their rights

Watch a presentation that celebrates and reflects on the role of photography in advocating for children’s rights.

For more information, visit: http://www.unicef.org/.

Please note that in some cases photography can intrude, humiliate and reduce dignity. Children are rarely asked if their pictures can be used for publicity. Things are changing and parents should now provide approval for images of their children to be used.

However in emergency situations this is often difficult.

We have to trust UNICEF photographers that they will be sensitive to the rights of children to have privacy and dignity and not to produce images that could humiliate or intrude.
