Jason Houston’s work is defined by a personal and transcendent dedication to community, culture, and how we live on the planet and with each other. He works closely — often embedded — with his subjects to learn from and accurately document their lives, understand the issues that affect them, and share the solutions that might help them. His engaged, long-term approach captures informed, authentic narratives that help engage the public to guide social and environmental change. Recent projects include a global survey of conservation enterprises and a campaign for the protection of 10 million hectares in the Amazon for indigenous people in isolation and initial contact. He has lectured and led workshops on cause-driven photography at Anderson Ranch, Telluride Photo Festival, Harvard, Yale, Duke, Nevada Museum of Art, San Francisco Art Institute, Mountainfilm, and many more. Jason is a Senior Fellow in the International League of Conservation Photographers, a Senior Fellow at Wake Forest University’s Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability, and for 8 years also worked as photography editor for Orion magazine.
