About Photographer

Michael Maher is an American born photographer. Most often, he works with humanitarian groups serving the needs of people in remote regions of the world. His goal is to create a body of work that represents a visual continuity for an organization. Much of what interests Michael is how dissimilar individuals and groups coexist within a society. His photography work allows Michael to immerse himself into a kaleidoscope of cultures where he gains a deeper appreciation of the human condition. It is this understanding of humankind, outside his own culture, that gives purpose to his photographs.
