“For me, photography isn’t a profession—it goes much, much deeper than that. I have an innate curiosity that drives me beyond the obvious.”

Pulitzer-prize winning photojournalist Renée Byer speaks about the power of photography to tell stories, to move us to compassion, to open our eyes to the world that surrounds us:

“I’m passionate about photojournalism and the power of the enduring, still image to inform and bring understanding to issues.

“In this fast-paced world, where the emphasis is on immediacy, a still photograph stops time. It gives the viewer a moment to think, to react, to feel.”
