PhotoSensitive[1] was founded by Toronto Star photographer Andew Stawicki in 1990 following a discussion with graphics editor Peter Robertson. Frustrated with the inability to tell detailed documentary stories within contemporary photojournalism they decided to create a non-profit with unpaid volunteer photographers to concentrate to a single project each year. Working in conjunction with others committed to social change PhotoSensitive photographers take photographs and then donate them to the organisations concerned. Projects have covered the homeless, the Hospital for Sick Children[2] in Toronto, the blind, child poverty, SARS, water,[3] First Nations, HIV/AIDS in Rwanda and cancer.[4] The resulting photographs are used in books, exhibitions and promotional materials to promote positive change.[5]
