Changing worlds with photography.
Donors like you have helped photographers fundraise 100% of project-related costs since 2014!
My name is Kevin Brady and I’m a photographer based in Brooklyn, New York. In 2012, I visited Guatemala and hiked for three days from Quetzaltenango to Lake Atitlan taking in the region for the first time. I spent the next week around the Lake and in the surrounding villages where the people and culture had a lasting impact on me. I’m excited to be returning to the area for two weeks in November to document the works of JUSTA for Photographers Without Borders. JUSTA operates four collectives around Lake Atitlan where they work with Mayan artisans to preserve traditional methods while promoting entrepreneurship and Fair Trade principles. In addition, JUSTA operates nutritional workshops to inspire the re-connection with traditional practices and local foods while promoting health education and nutrition.
Photographers Without Borders is a volunteer-run not-for-profit organization. Donations for this project will cover airfare, transportation, housing and pre-production costs. Any excess funds raised will go directly to JUSTA.
Established in 2010, this NGO dedicated to promoting social entrepreneurship, sustainable development and holistic empowerment of women and families through education and market access. The NGO strives to aid communities in becoming self-sustainable, inspiring creativity, initiative, self-worth and opening alternative education opportunities to improve lives.
ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHERS WITHOUT BORDERS
Every year, our photographers and videographers donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to document the work of grassroots initiatives that are making a real change in this world where it is most needed. By capturing, honouring and witnessing humanity at its best, we are not only inspiring many, but we are forging new narratives of what is and what is possible.
You can help by supporting our photographers and videographers (See the side bar to the right to see fundraisers for our most recent recruits).
Each of our official photographers/videographers is assigned a GroupRev fundraising page by PWB upon acceptance.

The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the photographer/videographer:
- Privately arranged travel / Equipment & Equipment Insurance / Software / Extra Baggage Fees / Donation perks / Clothing / Postage/Postcard / Prints / Etc.
