A number of professional photographers allow us to use their remarkable images on this website and in our promotional and educational materials. We thank them for supporting The Fred Hollows Foundation.
Hugh Rutherford is a Sydney-based photographer specialising in documentary. Working alongside The Foundation since 2006, Hugh’s cinematic style and strong sense of narrative, has taken him as far afield as the Samburu District in northern Kenya, to remote provinces in Pakistan.
James, from Topic Photo, has been volunteering his services to The Foundation for several years, travelling with us to Pacific Islands to capture the journey of patients receiving sight-restoring surgery.
Lisa is a professional photographer and supporter of The Fred Hollows Foundation through her business, ImageMe. She has always been passionate about photography and fascinated by the power of a good photograph to tell a story.
Photographer Michael Amendolia knew Fred for the last six months of his life and photographed the very early days of The Foundation in Vietnam, Eritrea and Nepal. Many of these black and white photographs appear in the book Seeing is Believing.
In 2006, Michael worked with The Foundation again, this time photographing the work of Foundation partner Dr Sanduk Ruit and his team on their first trip to North Korea where they screened 2,230 patients and restored sight to 702 people in 11 days.
Michael is based in Auckland, New Zealand, and specialises in commercial, food, editorial and sports photography.
He works for a wide range of corporate clients and sporting organisations including the ANZ Bank Ltd, SKYCITY, Foodstuffs, The Edge, Netball New Zealand and is also a contract photographer for Fairfax Media.
Sandy is an award-winning photographer who has taken striking photographs of The Foundation’s work in Samoa, South Africa and Vietnam.
Sandy’s photographs appear in the book Through Other Eyes, which commemorates the 10th anniversary of The Fred Hollows Foundation.
