SLAVERY TO LIBERATION: BOUND TO FREEDOM -- PHOTOGRAPHY BY LISA KRISTINE. Goff Books, ORO Editions, Novato, 2017. 160 pp. with 100 ills. (57 col.). 26 x 34 cm. ISBN 9781935935087 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: Many think slavery ended with the demise of the trans-Atlantic trade, but sadly, that's far from true. An estimated 36 million live without dignity or rights and although slavery is illegal in every country, it continues to persist in all -- as a crime against humanity. Lisa Kristine's indelible images seek to unify humanity and inform the viewer of the tangible humanness of individuals enslaved today. Lisa was invited to the Vatican as a witness to the signing of the Declaration to Eradicate Modern Day Slavery by 2020. When Pope Francis gathered 25 of the world's distinguished faith leaders the message was clear -- slavery is not a political issue -- it is a crime against humanity, against all people. Her journey sheds light on the need for a global shift from dependence on slave labor, to fair trade labor systems available and active in many parts of the world today. It is not simply a story about slavery, but liberation. In order to create change, we must first visualize what is required to free those enslaved today.
