Changing worlds with storytelling

Photography captures moments, expressions or the unique spirit of a person or place and as a photographer, I endeavour to bring these to life and evoke emotion through image. The power of imagery lies in the fact that it can make us recall emotions and moments of our own lives that may have no obvious connection with the images before us. These reactions are powerful. I believe that one of my roles as a photographer is to create images that can help us to really see and comprehend a story and set of circumstances.

I am honoured to have been selected by Photographers Without Borders for an assignment in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan in North India. In August 2020, I will be documenting the work of One Prosper whose mission it is to empower the women of the Thar Desert to break the cycle of poverty by enabling them to become self-sufficient through innovative farming practices, water, nutrition and educational support. There is power in storytelling with its ability to impart information and knowledge. My mission is to help raise awareness of this story and the compelling NGO working tirelessly to improve these oppressive conditions through impactful, authentic imagery. 

About PWB

Photographers Without Borders® (PWB) envisions a world where we all put ourselves in each others' shoes and work together. Our mission is to inform and inspire positive change by visually communicating the ways that grassroots initiatives are addressing problems in their communities and who are contributing to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals and UNDRIP. PWB is registered as a charity in the United States with 501(c)(3) status and is registered as a not-for-profit organisation in Canada.

Every year, our photographers and videographers donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to document the work of grassroots initiatives that are making a real change in this world where it is most needed. By capturing, honouring and witnessing humanity at its best, we are not only inspiring many, but we are forging new narratives of what is and what is possible.

Each of our official photographers/videographers is assigned a GroupRev fundraising page by PWB upon acceptance. These pages are a privilege we offer that are intended to make our programs accessible to all and enable our volunteer photographers/videographers to raise their program fees and subsidise or cover any necessary project-related expenses.

All donations are calculated in US Dollars and are tax-deductible for Americans and Canadians with US income.
