Tom Goldner uses his art to effect social change.

Early in 2011, Melbourne documentary photographer and Photo for Freedom founder, Tom Goldner went on a photographic journey through the remote Lake Volta region, a fishing community in Ghana where human trafficking is rife. During this trip he photographically documented the stories of the adults and children he lived with.

Created by Goldner and hosted by Global Gallery Paddington ‘Volta’ is featured as part of the 2013 Head On Photo Festival. Together with not-for-profit organisation YGAP (Y Generation Against Poverty) Tom aims to raise awareness about, and put an end to, modern day slavery in Ghana.

Goldner’s haunting black and white images empathetically communicate the emotional lives of Ghanaian children: revealing their joy and innocence along with the traumatic effects slavery has had on their lives and their community.

Images will be available for sale throughout the exhibition. Come out and support great art for a great cause.
