Further Information

Trinity House are honoured to be hosting acclaimed humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine’s first exhibitionin Europe.

A master storyteller, Lisa documents indigenous cultures in more than 100 countries on six continents, instinctively identifying the universal human dignity in all of us. Awakening compassion and igniting action in a worldwide audience with powerful, broad-sweeping images of courage and tender, intimate portrayals, Lisa 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.

“In Lisa Kristine’s images we see dignity despite
the dire and desperate circumstances. Her work
commands a respectful connection between the
viewer and the subject, insisting we acknowledge
the plights of those in bondage, and allowing us
to raise a hand to help.”

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

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 recognises 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 by 2020.

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. 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.

“Bearing witness to true beauty that belies the
evil within the souls of men, surely is the first act
of true liberation. Lisa Kristine’s images are a
testament to truth and an insightful and inspiring
body of evidence which should never and can
never be denied.”

David Clarke Tate Modern –Head of Photography 2004-2013

Lisa has published 5 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.

“Lisa Kristine’s images take us behind the veil to
the atrocities of slavery. To respect human dignity
for those from every walk of life, we must embrace
our unique role in upholding the precepts of
equality, belonging and purpose. When we do
so, together, we can enact powerful change.”

Sir Richard Branson
