Welcome to The Rights Exposure Project. The concept is simple – to explore the use of visual media – primarily photography and video – in social activism. The project, started in January 2009, looks to engage with communities, organisations and individuals interested in using visual tools in innovative and effective ways to lever positive change.

This site is for sharing experiences, materials and links to work in this field and welcomes contributions and information that helps to build the resource and stimulate debate.

The project is run by Rob Godden with the collaboration of Lourdes Hernández as well as other notable contributors along the way.

Rob holds a BA in Political Science from Metropolitan University and an MA in South Asia Area Studies [Politics major] from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He currently works as Asia-Pacific Regional Campaign Coordinator for Amnesty International and is based in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Lourdes works as a lecturer at the Language Centre of the London School of Economics. She has worked, on a volunteer basis, with several NGOs and she holds a MA in Human Rights. In the last three years, she has been involved in different projects related to documentary film-making. She is based in London.
