Ami Vitale is a master photographer for National Geographic Magazine, who tells the world’s stories through her photographs. She is fearless, adventurous and passionate when in comes to photography.
“In the beginning, photography was my passport to meeting people, learning, and experiencing new cultures. Now it is more than just a passport. It’s 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.”
Kenya’s last rhinos
Vitale truly believes in this, for she has lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria just to get the one photograph. She believes in living the story. Perhaps this allows her to fully understand the subject story and feel more passionate about it.
Her photographs are very powerful. They do not just capture the devastation and struggle faced by people but also, the surreal beauty of the human spirit.
