Ron van Dongen Flower Photography: Minimalism in Opulent Reality

Interview with the Photographer

Floral Diptych, Photography by Ron van Dongen

Ron van Dongen spent time across various time zones during different phases of his life. He was born in Judibana, Venezuela, 1961. He spent his early childhood in Warmond, The Netherlands. Perhaps, it is self-explanatory from where his intimacy with the floral world originated. Ron completed studies from the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. Ron van Dongen can truly say, ‘I know that if odour were visible as colour is, I’d see the summer garden aureoled in rainbow clouds.’

An Interview with the Iranian Photographer

Today’s Life and War, Photography by Gohar Dashti

Gohar Dashti is a visual storyteller from Iran.

A war ravaged society, torn by conflicts and even natural calamities such as the apocalypse featured in Volcano provide a grim background for her photographic essays. But life marches on nonetheless. And, as shown in ‘Today’s Life and War’, perseverance and determination succeed at the end.

Billy Dodson Wildlife Photography: Totally Captivated by Africa

An Interview with the Wildlife Photographer

Lion Cub Plays with Mother, Photography by Billy Dodson

It is a trip to Tanzania in 2001 that influenced Billy’s course of life in many ways. Not only he visited and revisited the continent many times since to fulfill his passion for photography but also to collaborate actively with many institutions striving to preserve the wealth of African fauna. He is a patron of Giraffe Conservation Foundation. He also regularly donates images both for spreading awareness about the cause and also to help in raising funds for African Wildlife Foundation, the Nature Conservancy and other conservation initiatives. That his art has found a greater purpose beyond being a source of a positive delight for the audience is perhaps his greatest achievement.
