Rohan Radheya is a The Hague based 26 year old Dutch Surinamese Photographer, best known for his coverage on exposing illegal organ trade on The Indian-Nepalese border areas.

Rohan started traveling from a very young age.
He always wanted to write when he was young.
Instead a coincidence introduced him to documentary photojournalism and he was instantly struck by the work and artistic visions of magnum photographers H.R Bresson P.Pellegrin, S. Salgado and Raghu Rai.
Touched by the numerous social and humanitarian problems he encountered during his travelings, he picked up a used camera with his last savings and started working on his first big photoreportage about exposing illegal organ trade in Naxalite-Maoist territory in Northeast India.
His work was later exhibited in various countries around the world and were distributed and licensed via major media outlets in the world of wire media which gained him recognition on international platform.

Rohan likes to research the stories he photographs.
He still likes to use film and old rangefinders for his best and selected work.
His work include stories that are extremely difficult to cover in some of the toughest, remote and most inaccessible parts in the world.
Some of these stories include topics in, war-torn Somalia and Eastern Ethiopia, high levelled anti human trafficking operations of interpol, ganglife on the streets of Nepal, diamond minings inside the very heart of Myanmar and melting glaciers deep inside the Tibetan Plateau.

Since of 2013 Rohan is officially represented by California based ZUMA press.
Above that he is a active and participating member of Amnesty International and Reporters Without Borders.
His work has been published in some of the most major newspapers and media outlets around the world including CNN, MSN Headlines, The Baltimore Sun, Latino Times, NG and many others.
