Abbas says, "Some people think that photojournalists can change the world with their
pictures, but the only thing we can do is to show why the world must be changed...."


Anger must not be forgotten   Injustice must not be forgiven
In this world of contradictions It is your smile, your very existence
Which heals wounds of despair and gives
strength to the timid.
Resistance is dwarfed in this age of massive complacency
Resistance must not be forgotten, and those who resist
must not be ignored.
As a witness to history and a chronicler of an era
It is your image I want to capture with my lens.
With a snap of the shutter of an independent photojournalist
Imagine what more will then be set free.
