MANIFESTO
Witness Journal comes from the experience of a journalists and photographers’ team, joined together in order to create a different and innovative project in the information system. Far from the standard business model, Witness proposes a different approach to information, according to many different points of view. It's a free, online monthly photo-magazine developed by an editorial staff and thanks to the contribute of professionist journalist and photographers, as well as citizen journalists.

At the same time we offer to our readers a different kind of information in compliance with many different aspects. First, we consider images, and not words, all-important. The stories told by Witness Journal are reported exclusively on the base of facts, that is pictures. The articles – written by the photographers in cooperation with the editorial staff – add extra information to the context Witness’ editorial line tends to give voice to events and local stories and above all to what we can hardly find on main stream information.
