Open Society Foundations

The Open Society Documentary Photography Project advances socially engaged photography and its potential to drive change. We support ambitious individuals, organizations, and groups working in physical and online spaces that engage diverse publics on critical social justice and human rights issues. We are committed to supporting a plurality of global voices and perspectives and seek to fund those who display extraordinary leadership and creativity in strengthening and expanding the field in new ways.

Through Moving Walls, an exhibition series that features photography on human rights and social justice issues, we provide a platform for global practitioners who are expanding the visual language of documentary photography in compelling ways. Our public programs combine the perspectives of photographers, advocates, and grassroots organizers to stimulate critical thinking about pressing global issues.
