World Vision's first entry into Toronto's Contact Photography Festival reveals another side to the story
MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 28 /CNW/ - An unconventional photo exhibit from international development agency World Vision is bound to be the talk of the Contact Photography Festival which opens on May 6. Images that are not typically used by the charity will be unveiled for the first time to reveal the faces behind the headlines.
Three photographers, Paul Bettings, Alyssa Bistonath and Andrew Goodwin, travel with World Vision to capture those faces and their stories. They are reframing the headlines to help build bridges between Canadians and the rest of the world. They are putting an end to the "us and them" mentality: one Untold Story at a time.

WHEN: 7:00 - 10:00 p.m., Thursday, May 6, 2010
