Lisa Kristine: Photos that bear witness to modern slavery

For the past two years, photographer Lisa Kristine has traveled the world, documenting the unbearably harsh realities of modern-day slavery. She shares hauntingly beautiful images - miners in the Congo, brick layers in Nepal - illuminating the plight of the 27 million souls enslaved worldwide. (Filmed at TEDxMaui)

"There are more than 27 million people enslaved in the world today -- that's double the amount of people taken from Africa during the entire trans-Atlantic slave trade." (Lisa Kristine)
