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.
