Silent Images is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide visual storytelling for ministries and nonprofits in Charlotte and around the world. Whether it is providing photography, video, or teaching others to tell their own story, their stories personally connect us to one another and encourage compassion. The goal at Silent Images is to move audiences to give, go and pray. They tell all kinds of stories, but some of the most common visual stories they capture deal with education, community development, fighting against injustices, empowerment and church ministry.
