by Ana Rivas (Spain)
My name is Ana Rivas and I am an amateur photographer, i.e. passionate about Photography.
I started practicing photography a few years ago, just because I needed a hobby at certain point of my life. I made some photographic travels to several countries in Africa and Asia, and I realized that I could contribute to highlight some situations with my photography, e.g. children living in the streets, child labour, etc.
I decided to be better with my photography and I decided to improve my postproduction skills, in both color and bnw. I also started being trained by good documentary photographers, e.g. Patrick Zachmann and now Ed Kashi, and also by street photographers, e.g. Alan Schaller or Marcelo Caballero, which is a field I got interested as well.
I came to NYC for the first time to participate in this workshop with Ed Kashi specifically. I really appreciate the stories an experiences from his professional life he has shared with us. It has been very inspiring.
