"Everyone carries hope inside of them," says humanitarian photographer Esther Havens. "That is what I search for."
After traveling on a joint trip with the host to Mozambique, Esther's ideas around photography began to shift. She didn't want to be a photojournalist any longer - away from her subjects, but wanted to be close to them to learn their story. When that shifted, her whole worldview changed. "The way that I photography is to interact with people first," she states. "I don't think people should be disrespectful and take a photo first."
On the 30th episode of SRO Conversations, Esther talks about gaining trust with her subjects; reflecting on a new life stage; and traveling and working as a woman.
