Who on earth is Lisa Kristine? For those of you who haven’t already Googled her, she is a humanitarian photographer.
Tim first saw a video on TED talks (LINK below) in which Lisa featured. It goes for about 20 minutes, but it’s worth a watch.
Pretty amazing don’t you think?
Somehow Tim worked out that Lisa’s gallery is in Sonoma, a town we where going to drive through whilst in California. So, of course we eagerly stopped by.
My first thought when we walked in was that I didn’t have room in my suitcase to buy anything 😦 That’s the problem when you’re travelling around, there’s no extra room in the suitcase.
Her photos are breathtaking. I think it’s Lisa’s ability to capture human emotion that moved me so much. You can not look into the lives of the people she comes into contact with and look the other way. The global statistics on slavery are given faces and names. It is Lisa’s gift to us and I’m so thankful for it. May people NEVER become a number or a statistic.
So who is Lisa Kristine? From my perspective, she’s an amazing photographer who is using her talents to bring light to a serious world-wide problem in the best way she can. She is a modern-day abolitionist.
Love Jess xxoo

I just watched the Lisa Kristine TED talk. So sobering… leaves me speechless… The gap between these peoples suffering and God’s love seems so vast… yet He loves them. Thanks for sharing Jess. Les
PS. Makes most of out ‘big issues’ seem so inconsequential….
Your blog led me on to ‘freetheslaves.net’ which has some good (?) videos.
