Lisa Kristine has seen a lot. She’s traveled the world to photograph remote indigenous peoples.

So she was “floored” at a conference when she heard that slavery still exists in the modern world. She’d never seen it in all her journeys.

Or had she?

You can read about Lisa’s journey of discovery in a new article, “Hidden in Plain Sight,” in the latest edition of Spirituality & Health magazine. Lisa describes how the realization that slaves are all around us burned a hole in her stomach and lit a fire in her heart.

Lisa grabbed her camera and visited FTS frontline operations in Ghana, Nepal and India. Her stunning photos came together in the book “Slavery.” It’s available for sale at Lisa’s website. Proceeds benefit Free the Slaves. (Her photo posted with this story shows gold mine slaves in Ghana.)

You should also read the companion article featuring FTS co-founder Peggy Callahan, “Bearing Witness to Modern Slavery.” Peggy describes the early days of forming FTS, and offers ideas for what everyone can do to take a stand against slavery today.

Can you help end the conditions that cause modern slavery?
