Lisa Kristine created her own job, traveling the world to take photos of indigenous people in remote places, and eventually emerged with own job title.
Now she is invariably designated the “humanitarian photographer,” best known for documenting slavery around the world with photos of people laboring in gold mines in Ghana and brick kilns in Nepal and India.
Her work drew the attention of director Jeffrey Brown, who was making the 2014 film “Sold,” which follows the journey of a 13-year-old Nepali girl who is sold to a brothel in India. The collaboration between Brown and Kristine led to the creation of Sophia, a character based on Kristine that was played by Gillian Anderson of “X-Files” fame.
