Independent photographer, writer and designer Kelley Lynch focuses on sharing stories that give voice to some of the world’s most remote, marginalized and vulnerable people.
Having lived and worked in the developing world for almost two decades, Kelley is currently based in Washington, DC.
She continues to travel regularly throughout Africa and Asia covering stories on a diverse range of social and humanitarian issues, including: pastoralism, education, water, sanitation and hygiene, disaster risk reduction, maternal and child health and nutrition, faith based initiatives , livelihoods, and environment and resilience.
Her work has been used to build awareness, influence donors, advocate with governments, and secure tens of millions in funding for a range of clients.
Built over many years in the field, Kelley's clientele is based largely on repeat business, word of mouth and referrals. Her clients include UNICEF, USAID, the Global Partnership for Education, Save the Children, CARE, World Vision, Mercy Corps and the British Council, among others.
Her diverse skill set provides them with tangible benefits. As the sole creative sent to the field, the photography, writing and design come together under a single, unified vision. This also brings down project costs and streamlines project management.
Kelley has authored or co-authored more than 20 books, including the coffee table book Postcards from Bangladesh. In addition to creating publications, she is regularly engaged to produce photo essays, stories, blog posts and other social media content.
