The name AnthropoGraphia is a combination of the Greek words “anthropo" and “graphia", which literally means ‘human-being - writing’. The essence of these terms reveals AnthropoGraphia’s mission: to write human stories, using photography as the medium.
AnthropoGraphia is committed to the denunciation of human rights abuses through high-quality visual storytelling.
We recognize the power of advocacy visual storytelling in raising awareness and reject distinctions between photojournalism and the arts, in order to bring together a variety of approaches to the long-term, in-depth photographic essay that focuses on human rights.
Our aim is to raise general awareness of issues that are often marginalized by the mainstream media. We also strive to encourage non-western and emerging photographers by promoting them alongside the world’s most celebrated photographers.
