Photography & Activism, Michelle Bogre, Jonathan Torgovnik

In this segment AIR's Jeannie Hopper discusses photojournalism and activism with Michelle Bogre, Associate Professor in the School of Art, Media and Society at Parsons The New School. Michelle's finishing up a book (late 2010 release) on the topic and seeks to motivate students to use the medium to expose issues and bringing about change. Jonathan Torgovnik, photojournalist and activist, exemplifies such an effort. Michelle found Jonathan through and a story he did on Rwandan rape victims who became pregnant and then chose to give birth. He was inspired to create Foundation Rwanda to provide education, support, and awareness for mothers and children of the genocide era. In Part 2 we go deeper into Jonathan's ongoing work and the progress of his foundation.
