Esther Havens is a humanitarian photographer who works with charity organisations including Invisible Children, Global Hope and charity:water.
Her images show an obvious connection and care for those that she photographs, often managing to be both humorous and sad at once. Esther’s images are, to me, what humanitarian photography is all about. They draw you in, connect you to the person or people in the image, make you want to take action. I’ve written before on this blog about the value of photography and Esther’s photography is the perfect example of how valuable a compelling image can be.
