NGO Work

I have always considered myself, first and foremost, a documentary photographer. Together with street photography, documentary photography got me interested in photography many years ago. My approach to wedding photography and other event coverage is almost 100% documentary and I sometimes describe myself as a documentary and street photographer who happens to also shoot weddings and events.

Over the years, I have had the privilege of doing some photo documentary work for numerous non-governmental organisations (NGOs).  The following contains a selection of photographs from a couple of projects that I was involved in.
