"Exploring how we live on the planet”

Photographer Jason Houston has spent over 20 years photographing community, culture, and how we live on the planet for editorial and NGO clients and personal projects. His engaged, long-term approach to complex issues captures informed, authentic narratives that help educate the public and guide social and environmental change. Recent projects include a global survey of conservation enterprises and a campaign for the protection of 10 million hectares in the Amazon for indigenous people in isolation and initial contact. He has lectured and led workshops on cause-driven photography at Anderson Ranch, Telluride Photo Festival, Harvard, Yale, Duke, Nevada Musuem of Art, San Francisco Art Institute, Mountainfilm, and many more. Jason is a Senior Fellow in the International League of Conservation Photographers, a Senior Fellow at Wake Forest University’s Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability, and for 8 years also worked as photography editor for Orion magazine.
