The images used on this website are the copyright of Minority Rights Group or copyright free unless credited on the page where they appear. MRG is indebted to the photographers from minority communities who work hard to ensure their communities are represented.

MRG is also extremely grateful to the freelance photographers and organisations who work with and depict minority and indigenous peoples around the world. There are many barriers to doing this – not least geographical and political – but it is vital that these communities have a visual presence and a voice in the wider world. Thank you to those who help to make their situations better understood.
