“Modern day slavery is illegal everywhere yet exists almost everywhere, often in plain view.”
10" x 13", Landscape
Slavery didn’t end with the cessation of trans-Atlantic trade to Americas in the 19th century. Modern day slavery is illegal everywhere yet exists almost everywhere, often in plain view. According to the Global Slavery Index, nearly forty-six million people are enslaved today.
Lisa Kristine’s new photographic essay ‘Bound to Freedom’ presents this crime against humanity as it exists today – as child labor, sex trafficking, in gold mining, in stone quarrying, and the manufacturing of textiles. In compelling images, Lisa Kristine brings us face to face with these people, toiling in inhuman circumstances, and shows us the celebration of freedom of those liberated.
‘Bound to Freedom’ is a call to action. In order to create change in a world that allows such crimes to exist, we first need to see and understand how it exists. The book concludes with resources and steps we can take to help free the enslaved. It is a statement of hope and commitment to help free the world of this injustice.
Lisa Kristine documents humanity in more than 100 countries on six continents, elevates significant social causes—such as the elimination of human slavery and the unification of humanity—to missions. Her work resonates in the heart and moves us to act. Lisa has gained broad recognition for her collaboration with the NGO Free the Slaves. This breathtaking body of work, illuminating human enslavement, is brought together in Slavery, published in 2010 as well as Bound To Freedom. Lisa has received global attention for shining a light on contemporary slavery across media platforms, including CNN and Reuters, speaking at TED events, museums, NGO’s, business conferences, colleges and universities. Carmine Gallo has praised Lisa’s speaking presentations in the 2014 book, Talk Like TED, The 9 Public Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds.
Lisa was the sole exhibitor at the 2009 Vancouver Peace Summit, attended by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other award winning Nobel Laureates. Lisa has enabled new social and financial capital for the causes she champions. Christie’s New York, in celebration with Kofi Annan, has auctioned her images to benefit the United Nations. The Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Queen Mother of Bhutan and Amnesty International, have all endorsed her work. In 2013, Lisa was the recipient for the Lucie Foundation’s 2013 Humanitarian Award that recognizes achievements of master photographers. Her photographs inspired the Make a Stand Lemonade movement, which has raised more than a million dollars and has enlightened the awareness of over 100 million people toward the eradication of slavery. In December 2014 she was invited to the Vatican to join Pope Francis and 25 of the world’s faith leaders who signed the unprecedented declaration to eradicate slavery.
Lisa has published 6 books and has been the subject of 4 documentaries. Her work on Slavery has been featured in three films released in 2014. One of these films, SOLD the movie, made by Oscar Award winning team, Emma Thompson and Jeffrey Brown, includes a character inspired by Lisa and played by Gillian Anderson.
Lisa’s purpose-driven interactions with diverse cultures, her passionate sensitivity about the human condition, and her finely-tuned craft produces truthful, profound images of the beauty, suffering, compassion—and above all—the dignity of men, women and children around our world.
