About - Aga L. Photography

About

I am cultural photographer and doctoral candidate currently based inJohannesburg, South Africa.  Over the years, my travels took me across many countries and continents, diverse cultures and environments, experiences that allowed me to fully understand, and appreciate diverse beauty of our planet. Focus of my photography is to capture and document tribal heritage, everyday humanity, personal stories which inspire me to live and travel with depth and purpose. My assignments involve both freelance work and collaborations with various NGOs. I use my education and expertise to raise health awareness, support human rights, conservation efforts, and empower most vulnerable and less privileged members of our societies.
