Executive Editor, Leigh Barrett recently returned to South Africa after a lengthy stay in America to launch Perspective Publications. A veteran journalist with experience in television, print, and radio, and a strong advocate of ethical journalism, Barrett states the main goals of the publications as an effort to present as full a 'perspective' of this diverse world as possible, going beyond the headline stories covered in most media, and also to give a platform to writers and photographers working in humanitarian news who frequently struggle to find an outlet for the important topics we face globally.
