                Speaking from the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop in Sarajevo, Bosnia, photographer Ron Haviv explains a useful role for photography and photographers in the world of education. As part of the Telling History Project with the Children’s Movement for Creative Education, Ron brought his photos into high schools to teach human rights and conflict resolution. His photos worked as a conversation starter and built bridges across cultures: “We went into inner city schools — schools that were broken apart because of gangs — and when explaining to them the story of the former Yugoslavia or Darfur or Rwanda, they actually understood it in a very special and quick way because it really mirrored their own lives,” he says.
