RUIDO Photo is an organization dedicated to highlighting social issues and violations of human rights through documentary photography. We work on our own projects as well as on assignments from media, public institutions, NGOs and individuals. We produce photo reports, documentary videos, exhibitions, print publications, awareness campaigns and participatory photography workshops. We also offer training in schools and portfolio reviews for individuals.

We don’t care about the photos, we care about the stories.
