NOOR is a collective of visual storytellers specializing in contemporary global issues. We create personal and self-initiated photo essays and features and do international photography and multimedia assignments for editorial clients, NGO’s and other organizations committed to the fundamental power of photography to bear witness to the struggle for human rights and social justice. We seek to contribute to a growing understanding of the world by producing visual reports that stimulate positive social change, and impact views on human rights and other issues of global concern.
