I feel privileged to have heard the passion and honesty that Stuart has over his work. His images are some of the most powerful I have seen for a long time. Stuart Freedman is a photo journalist, with a strong ability to write. He has traveled across the world covering some emotional scenes over his career. His web site is well worth a visit.
The understanding that he has for his subject is inspiring. Knowing that researches is subject in great detail before going might sound obvious, however the level he goes to is not. The fact that he builds up more than just an inquisitive journalistic knowledge of his subject, to me is unexpected, personalizing the relationship to build something that can be classed as a long lasting friendships rather than just a journalists visit.
