Jason Houston, Speaker
Jason Houston’s photography looks how we live on the planet and with each other through the lens of culture, community, and human experience. He works closely with the communities he photographs, including various collaborative and participatory approaches, to learn from and accurately document their lives, understand the issues that affect them, and drive awareness to help guide social and environmental change.
Jason has partnered with many organizations including The Nature Conservancy, WWF, UNESCO, USAID, and the Pulitzer Center on projects ranging from wildland firefighting in the American west and maternal healthcare in Haiti and Nepal to documentation of small-scale fisheries throughout the developing tropics. His work has been published editorially and exhibited publicly around the world and he is a Senior Fellow at International League of Conservation Photographers and a Fellow at Wake Forest University’s Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability.
