Unscramble the Blue Letters

I want to shine a light on slavery. When I was working in the field, I brought lots of candles with me, and with the help of my ieerrptetnr, I imparted to the people I was photographing that I wanted to illuminate their stories and their plight, so when it was safe for them, and safe for me, I made these images. They knew their image would be seen by you out in the world. I wanted them to know that we will be bearing wsnteis to them, and that we will do whatever we can to help make a difference in their lveis. I truly believe, if we can see one another as fellow human beings, then it becomes very difficult to trolaete atrocities like serlavy. These images are not of issues. They are of people, real people, like you and me, all deeisnrvg of the same rights, dgntiiy and respect in their lives. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of these many beautiful, mistreated people I've had the tremoendus honor of meeting.

Original Text

I want to shine a light on slavery. When I was working in the field, I brought lots of candles with me, and with the help of my interpreter, I imparted to the people I was photographing that I wanted to illuminate their stories and their plight, so when it was safe for them, and safe for me, I made these images. They knew their image would be seen by you out in the world. I wanted them to know that we will be bearing witness to them, and that we will do whatever we can to help make a difference in their lives. I truly believe, if we can see one another as fellow human beings, then it becomes very difficult to tolerate atrocities like slavery. These images are not of issues. They are of people, real people, like you and me, all deserving of the same rights, dignity and respect in their lives. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of these many beautiful, mistreated people I've had the tremendous honor of meeting.
