Join us April 8 and 9 for Latin America: Stories That Drive Change Seminar at The University of Miami in Miami, Florida. The seminar will be an opportunity to share and celebrate photojournalism by Latin American and Latino journalists. It will also help all visual journalists learn how to better develop and support their own work.
Images stay with their viewers. They touch our souls and move our hearts. Photography drives change, one person at a time. This is why we believe in and support photography that drives change.
Alexia photojournalists produce in-depth essays that touch your heart, feed your mind and, most importantly, move you to action. Explore more than 140 real life Alexia supported stories from across the globe.
