KAY CHERNUSH is an award-winning photographer with more than 30 years experience in commercial and fine art photography. In 2005, an assignment for the U.S. State Department brought her face to face with the evils of human trafficking and modern slavery. Challenged and appalled by this human rights atrocity, Ms. Chernush began working with individual survivors and anti-trafficking organizations in cities around the world. She developed an innovative approach, using collaged and constructed imagery that dignifies trafficked persons and re-frames how their stories are portrayed. To broaden the scope of her project, Ms. Chernush founded ArtWorks for Freedom in July 2011, to use the power of art in all its forms to fight modern slavery.
