Join us and hear two incredible documentary photographers discuss their beautiful images in this year’s Festival.  

Alain’s show Grandma divers explores the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage-listed Haenyeo, or women of the sea, whose ancient tradition of free-diving off the Jeju shores of South Korea is slowly disappearing. Alain will share with us his thoughts on this project. 

Mark’s exhibition The people of the forest is a collaboration with the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation. Hear what it’s like to work to conserve these magnificent primates. 

About the artists

Alain Schroeder is a Belgian photojournalist whose work has appeared on more than 500 magazine covers. In 1989, he founded Reporters, a well-known photo agency in Belgium that he led into the digital age.   

In 2013, he traded in his stake in Reporters to pursue life on the road with a camera. Schroeder now travels the world, capturing stories that focus on social issues, people and their environment.   

His work has featured in over thirty books dedicated to various countries and locations worldwide, including China, Persia, Ancient Rome, the gardens of Europe, and many more. He has won many international awards, including Nikon Japan, Nikon Belgium, TPOTY, and World Press Photo

After graduating from California State University, Los Angeles, with a Master of Arts Degree in Pictorial/Documentary History, Mark Edward Harris started his professional photography career doing the stills for various television and movie companies.   

In 1986, he set off on a four-month trek across the Pacific and throughout Southeast Asia, China and Japan. The images created on that trip brought attention to his documentary photography. Assignments have since taken him to more than 100 countries on six continents.
