NOOR actively engages in developing and promoting broader documentary projects through the photographer’s individual and collective work. We produce in-depth photo-essays and pursue longer-term visual reportage as a means of critically exploring current global issues. As a group, the NOOR photographers work on projects and organize collective exhibitions and presentations, such as the multi-year climate change project, which has been seen by millions in international print and online publications, exhibitions, street posters, projections, conferences, public art installations and social media. To realize our projects we seek the collaboration of NGOs and foundations, and the financial support of grants, subsidies and sponsor partnerships.
