Dorte Verner Photography Collection
Dorte Verner’s photography focuses on people that have no voice and will never make the news. She captures their beauty and strength through intimate moments, whether in refugee camps or in indigenous communities impacted by climate change. ... Dorte's portfolio centers on environmental portraits, with images inspired by the life and livelihood of people living in extreme situations and in remote geographical locations. These include rural areas in Africa such as Omo Valley, the Arabian Deserts, Latin America’s semi-arid areas, the Amazon, and Asia’s mountains and plains. Many of the people living in these areas are affected by climate change, globalization, and other changes, the causes of which they have contributed little to. Others are forcibly displaced, including refugees.
Dorte was born in Denmark and lives in Washington, D.C., USA. She is a Photographer and holds a PhD in economics. She has received numerous awards for her photography and her work is published in books, magazines, and on websites. Her photographs are featured in solo and group exhibits, and her images are on permanent display in International Organizations.
