Portraits by Rodney Rascona

A special collection of poignant portraits and images by Rodney Rascona, an advertising photographer who creates images for the international advertising and design community. Considered his most important work,are his reportage images documenting the human condition throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America dealing with AIDS-HIV, famine, health, education and agriculture for humanitarian organizations worldwide. Sensitive subjects invite him inside their lives, giving him the right, the access, to document their joys, their pain and sorrow. His subjects feel his empathy and at times grant him this intimate view of their life, while enduring the weight of poverty, strife or terminal illness. As a mature image maker, Rodney creates strong, illuminating compositions while preserving the inner dignity of the people he photographs
