Picture Project

http://www.picture-projects.com/history.html Picture Projects was founded in 1995 by Alison Cornyn and Sue Johnson to create documentaries using new media technologies. The team has collaborated with noted photographers, journalists, filmmakers and academicians to tackle major contemporary social concerns. Cornyn and Johnson met at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program. Their first project on the web, with Gilles Peress - Farewell to Bosnia - was created with Chris Vail, also at ITP, and launched in early 1995. The impetus for the project was to bring attention to the war in Bosnia and to use the web as a venue to present photographs that no U.S. editors would publish. The site was awarded the Milia New Talant Award and was linked to by CNN. From that project on, the team has experimented with the web as a space for presenting alternative points of view and complex and in-depth perspectives. Participatory storytelling is at the heart of much of the studio's work.
