This chapter discusses a travelling exhibition designed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1950 to introduce the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948. It describes the history of the exhibition and the way that UNESCO regarded photography as neutral, ideal for generating an internationalist sensibility. It then examines the way that UNESCO used particular images to construct an account of the universality of human rights.
