I am featured in the latest Nikon Pro Magazine, the tri-annual publication from Nikon Europe read by over 75,000 professional photographers and serious enthusiasts worldwide.
The magazine carries news and features that are intended to inspire, inform and engages its readers. Each issue selects “eight superb photos” and discusses “the motivations of the people who created them.
My picture of a school boy in a village in Rwanda, photographed for the organisation DelAgua, was selected for a two page spread. DelAgua’s project in Rwanda will provide individual households with a ready supply of clean water and a safer, more efficient means of cooking.
Under the project, 600,000 advanced water filters and 600,000 high efficiency cookstoves will be distributed to the poorest 30% of households. This equates to about 3 million people.
The water filters eliminate bacterial contamination - providing safe water for drinking and washing. The cookstoves use less wood and burn more efficiently - this helps prevent diseases caused by air pollution and reduces carbon emissions.
