For the final 2014 edition of FOCAL POINT, I have selected three female photographers who are using photography to inform viewers about an important issue in today's world. While the projects are technically documentary or photojournalistic in nature, these women bring the viewer to the topic in softer, more subtle way than this style typically suggests. When the message does land gently in the viewer's lap, the surprise of it creates a powerful impact.
