Recognising that photography is more than pictures on a page, Media Systems engage in all forms of visual communication producing exhibitions, multimedia and video as well as long-term documentary projects.
We believe in the photography of ideas. Not content with merely witnessing. We are not afraid to take a position on current events or contemporary issues and offer perspectives that challenge commonly held assumptions. Media Systems photographers bring an unparalleled understanding and awareness of the sensitivities and ethical dimensions of the issues and areas they document.
Media Systems have been responsible for creating and relaying to the world many of the images that define the turbulent opening years of the 21st century.
MSI seeks to contribute to a growing understanding of the world by producing independent in-depth visual reports that stimulate positive social change, and impact views on human rights and other issues of global concern.
We document conflict – environmental, social and political, both violent and non-violent – to produce an unflinching record of the injustices created and experienced by people caught up in the events they describe.
