Story telling needs words and pictures

About half a dozen of our images that feature in this edition of Field Exchange are the work of Samuel Hauenstein Swan, who has kindly allowed ENN to use them. You might have spotted him also as co-author on an article aid for nutrition in his technical role at ACF International. Samuel is an independent photographer and researcher on humanitarian issues for over two decades. His story-telling strives to explore individual experience of living through crisis and show the resilience of communities faced with disasters. Having published extensively on emergencies and development, his documentary photography and participatory analysis go hand in hand, reinforcing each other to maximise policy and advocacy impact.

Samuel’s work has been published by Médecins Sans Frontières, Action Against Hunger, United Nations, Tearfund, the Department for International Development UK) and others. His Haiti work was selected for the Summershow 2011 by Foto8 and rewarded third place at Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year.
