Ed Kashi is a photojournalist, filmmaker and educator dedicated to documenting the social and political issues that define our times. A sensitive eye and an intimate relationship to his subjects are the signatures of his work. Kashi’s complex imagery has been recognized for its compelling rendering of the human condition.
Along with numerous awards, including UNICEF’s Photo of the Year 2010, a Prix Pictet 2010 Commission and honors from Pictures of the Year International, Communication Arts and
American Photography, Kashi’s images have been published and exhibited worldwide, and his editorial assignments and personal projects have generated six books.
In 2008, Curse of the Black Gold: 50 Years of Oil in the Niger Delta was published, and June 2009 saw the publication of Kashi’s latest book THREE, based on a series of triptychs culled from more than 20 years of image making.
