Follow Open Society Foundations on Instagram, where each week a new photographer takes over the account to share personal photo projects from around the world. Projects explore different aspects of human rights and the human condition with a focus on justice and equality. We are always looking for new photographers to takeover the account. We pay a stipend as a way to help support these important projects and photographers.
