Biography – Philippe Schneider (b. 1967)
Tel: 07337553219 – 0438826139
I was born in France, 1967. After dabbling in student activism whilst completing a Bachelor of Arts and Communication at university, I found my calling as a humanitarian aid worker. I have been exposed to the spectrum of human existence whilst working in Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Mongolia, India, Sudan (Darfur) and Timor-Leste. I believe that the commentary of human experience can ideally be shared through the medium of photography and I strive to create work that informs the social conscience.
