Jasper Doest

    Dutch photographer Jasper Doest creates visual stories that explore the relationship between humankind and nature and is a contributing photographer to National Geographic magazine.

    Having majored in ecology, Doest knows human life depends on everything our planet has to offer, yet he recognizes the unsustainable nature of the current human patterns of consumption. As a true believer in the power of photography to initiate the needed change, Doest is an International League of Conservation Photographers senior fellow and a World Wildlife Fund ambassador. 

    His accolades include four World Press Photo Awards and in 2020 he was named European Wildlife Photographer of the Year.  Recently Jasper released  “MEET BOB”–a unique book featuring the intimate love story of a flamingo named Bob and his rescuer Odette–as a reminder that individual actions, driven by love and empathy, can have an enormous positive impact on the world around us.
