The photographs in the Human Thread Foundation exhibitions are more than simple images, they inspire change.

A master storyteller, humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine has documented indigenous cultures in more than 100 countries on six continents, instinctively identifying the universal human dignity in all of us. Awakening compassion and igniting action in a worldwide audience with powerful, broad-sweeping images of courage and tender, intimate portrayals, the photographs elevate significant social causes—such as the elimination of human slavery and the unification of humanity—to missions.

The foundation’s exhibitions resonate in the heart and moves people to action.

“Few artists know how to capture the diversity and dignity of indigenous people. Lisa Kristine’s portraits exquisitely convey their silenced messages.”

Cosette Thompson, Amnesty International


The exhibition ENSLAVED engages awareness and offers specific, doable and effective ways for people to help make sustainable change to eradicate slavery forever. It is created to inspire sustainable change at a local, national, and global level through education with visual story telling accompanied by information and curriculum on slavery today.


Bhutan has remained for centuries largely untouched by contemporary society. Documenting these quiet moments, the intent of PILLAR OF SPIRIT is to bring attention to this deeply spiritual land and the importance of its preservation, given its vulnerability to change. Bhutan still symbolizes the last untainted remnant of the rapidly vanishing Himalayan culture.


An exhibition that is our namesake, A HUMAN THREAD explores an intimate and honest portrait of humanity, documenting intimate lives and preserving moments of intense emotion and dignity. This collection of humanistic portraits spans our planet, and we are introduced to the inseparable, indivisible notion that we are all connected.

We are all connected.
And we all have human value.

It doesn’t take much to change a life.
