“Hauntingly beautiful photographs of fragile cultures and marginalized peoples.”
"My aim is to make the viewer “feel” something. It doesn't necessarily always have to be a nice feeling, just some kind of emotional impact."
“Photography is a tool for creating awareness and understanding across cultures, communities, and countries; a tool to make sense of our commonalities in the world we share.”
“One of the most rewarding things in my job is to share and capture emotion. The human spirit in raw light. ”
“Being active, shooting in some of the worlds most treacherous locations and being involved in some high adrenaline situations.”
IN JUST TWO DAYS, ATTENDEES ARE SURROUNDED BY MORE INDUSTRY EXPERTISE, ENTHUSIASM AND UNRIVALLED NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES THAN THEY'LL LIKELY FIND IN AN ENTIRE YEAR.
