We believe that photography is a powerful tool to increase empathy for others across borders and cultures—and right now, nothing is more important.

This November 2016, Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs celebrates the 12th Instagram Take-Over in a series titled, "The World through My Eyes," where talented photographers from around the world are assigned to "take over" the Council's Instagram account for a week out of every month.
“We believe that photography is a powerful tool to increase empathy for others across borders and cultures—and right now, nothing is more important," said Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal at the start of this new initiative.
This month's photographer is freelance British journalist Jack Losh, with a stunning series of photos of Eastern Ukraine, from the front line to everyday life.
