Continuing with the ‘Faces of….‘ posts, here’s a small selection of shots from my recent assignment in Nicaragua. As I’ve mentioned numerous times before, one of the joys of working as a humanitarian photographer is the opportunity to meet some extraordinary people. The Nicaraguans I met were happy to allow me into their homes and share of their stories and experiences. I’m sure some of those stories will make it onto my blog later.
If you head over to http://www.hebervega.com/2010/04/23/10q-series-wayne-rowe/ you will find my 10Q interview that has been posted on Heber Vega’s website. Heber had a great idea to ask humanitarian and cultural photographers to answer ten questions relating to their work. Personally, it was a good opportunity for me to stop and think for a moment about what I do and the reasons behind doing it, so I thank Heber for creating that opportunity. It’s also a privilege to share interview space with such esteemed photographers as David duChemin, Matt Brandon, Gary Chapman and Matt Powell.
Also, check out Heber’s other postings while you’re on his site, it makes interesting reading and he writes with honesty and integrity . It’s good to see someone who is extremely passionate about his humanitarian work , oh, and by the way, he’s also a great photographer!
The Wednesday after I returned from Haiti and Nicaragua, I was invited to BBC Radio Nottingham to have an interview on the John Holmes show. Here’s a recording of the interview, I’ve taken out the news and music track sections.
