A new exhibition is showcasing photos from across the world taken by people trying to make a difference on issues from fighting climate change, poverty and hunger to promoting human rights.

Making a Difference through Photography is an exhibition by FotoWare, whose spokesperson Radmila Milenkovich said "A photo can say more than a thousand words!

"In day-to-day life, it’s sometimes easy to forget about things we do not see; media write about world issues that are just so hard to take in, and sometimes hard to imagine."

The exhibition features work from organisations including Oceana, PhotoVoice, Wings of Support, Greenpeace, Ami Vitale and Melanie-Jane Frey.

It will run in the former shipyard of Aker Brygge, Oslo, for three weeks from 18 September.
