Established in 2020 in Montpellier, France, the FotoEvidence Association operates at the intersection of human rights and photography, focusing on the FotoEvidence Book Award and the FotoEvidence W Award specifically for women photographers. The organization's primary goal is to amplify and support the initiatives of FotoEvidence, a publishing house founded in 2010, dedicated to documentary photography that addresses human rights, as well as social and ecological justice. Originally based in Brooklyn, New York, FotoEvidence has since relocated to the village of Marseillan in Herault, France.

The core mission of the FotoEvidence Association is to spotlight injustice, oppression, and attacks on human dignity through the lens of photographers working in the humanistic tradition. FotoEvidence books concentrate on pressing social and environmental justice issues, ranging from genocide to global warming. Published with the intention to inspire social change, expose injustice, create lasting evidence, and demand accountability, these books have become instrumental in bringing attention to critical matters. Since 2012, the FotoEvidence Book Award has honored documentary photographers whose work demonstrates courage and commitment in addressing violations of human rights, significant injustices, or assaults on human dignity.

In response to the 2022 invasion of Ukraine, FotoEvidence adopted a novel approach. Instead of focusing on an individual photographer, the organization spearheaded a collective action within the photojournalism community to document Russia's invasion, the devastating impacts of war, Russia's indiscriminate and criminal violence, and the resilience of Ukrainian identity and resistance. This collaborative effort reflects FotoEvidence's dedication to leveraging the power of photography to raise awareness, advocate for justice, and document crucial moments in our global landscape.
