At PixelPress our intent is to encourage documentary photographers,
writers, filmmakers, artists, human rights workers and students
to explore the world in ways that take advantage of the new
possibilities provided by digital media. We seek a new paradigm
of journalism, one that encourages an active dialogue between
the author and reader and, also, the subject.
Our online magazine features projects that use a variety of
linear and non-linear strategies, attempting to articulate
visions of human possibility even while confirming human frailty.
For us the digital revolution is a revolution in consciousness,
not in commerce.
We work with organizations such as Crimes of War, Human Rights
Watch, World Health Organization and UNICEF to create Web
sites that deal directly with contemporary issues in complex
and innovative ways that circumvent media sensationalism and
simplification. We also try to factor in ways that the viewer
can help remedy social problems, rather than remain a spectator.
Recently we completed a site focusing on how to end polio
worldwide; another trying to aid an orphanage in Rwanda; one
trying to reclaim the Brazilian forest; and a site featuring
the images of photographers from the Vietnam War. And we also
create books with photographers such as Machiel Botman, Kent
Klich and Sebastião Salgado on social themes, as well
as traveling exhibitions using both digital and conventional
