Antonio Briceño is a Venezuelan photographer, known for his photographs of Rwandans, and Attila Lóránt is a Hungarian photographer, known for his photographs of the Wappony. Coming from such disparate places, they would seem to have little in common. Yet they are both on a crusade to save what Lóránt calls Disappearing Cultures -- he is the founder of a foundation of that name, and works with National Geographic to further its aims -- and to use Art Works for Change, to refer to the organization that sponsored Briceño’s work.
