Women in Photography are rare. And even more rare are women who combine photojournalism with activism. For Nelly Ating, there was no way she was going to pass up on this fantastic form of creative expression.
An as art form, photography requires a keen eye, a deeply creative soul and a touch of artistic craft in its manifestation. Photo journalism is about storytelling. Every pixel, resolution, angle of short, ISO, etc., matters. The devil, as they say, is in the details. Your attention to its art form captures the maxim: A Picture Tells a Thousand Words.
When you sit with Nelly Ating, who is a PhD student and Teaching Assistant at Cardiff University, you come away feeling like you’ve uncovered a goldmine of ideas and approach to life.
