Focus on the Story is an independent, nonpartisan, non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. We support and encourage photographers of diverse backgrounds to use visual storytelling to bring attention to critical issues, bridge cultural gaps and spark social change.
Our programming includes:
- Organizing regular photography exhibits and talks, including an annual festival, around important regional, national and global issues;
- Providing resources, grants and training for visual artists so that they can better document and tell stories that are important to their communities;
- Working with nonprofits to help them tell their stories and raise awareness of their issues;
- Promoting powerful, impactful storytelling through our website and printed publications.
We’re always on the lookout for compelling visual storytelling. If you have a personal project that fits into our mission, let us know.
